Pennsylvania Joins Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunities for Military Children

Pennsylvania became the 40th state to join the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunities for Military Children.  Senate Bill 159 was carried by Sen. Robert Robins and signed into law by Gov. Tom Corbett yesterday.   The compact, which drafted jointly by CSG and the Department of Defense, aims to remove barriers to educational success imposed on children of military families due to frequent moves.  With a full time Commission staff, an operational national office, and 40 states on board in less than four legislative sessions the growth and effectiveness of this particular agreement is a testament to the power and appeal of interstate compacts.
