(Philadelphia) -- The four Democratic gubernatorial candidates are promising to take a hard line against publicly financed, privately run charter and cyber charter schools in Pennsylvania.
Former Clinton White House environmental adviser Katie McGinty says she'd refuse taxpayer money for any charter school operated by a for-profit company.
Congressman Allyson Schwartz says she'd defund cyber charter schools altogether and put the money into early childhood education programs.
State Treasurer Rob McCord says he'd need a lot more evidence before funding cyber charter schools, while businessman Tom Wolf says it's hard to justify the existence of cyber charters.
Republican Governor Corbett has sought to promote private, parochial and charter schools.
