By N. Aaron Troodler Pennsylvania has long been a pioneer in school choice, providing tax-credit programs that enable tens of thousands of low- and middle-income families to place their children in the most appropriate educational settings. But the state's budget stalemate threw these crucial programs into a dangerous limbo. Ultimately, Gov. Wolf took the necessary steps to free up the $150 million in scholarship funding from Pennsylvania's unique tax-credit programs, which give pre-K-to-12th-grade students the ability to attend the nonpublic schools best suited to their needs and beliefs.

Entering his senior year last fall, Richard Watson was an honor student who ranked 19th academically in his 374-member class. He also was a starter for his school's football team and had been designated a captain for its baseball team. Despite his academic and athletic prowess, however, Watson is not playing baseball this spring for Edgewood High School. And the reason he has been prevented from doing so caused his family to do battle recently with the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA)

Two Chester County brothers are fighting back against federal regulators. The Powhatan Energy Fund, owned by Malvern natives Richard and Kevin Gates, made millions in the energy market in 2010. The government said it was too much. Late last month, federal regulators hit their energy fund and its associates with a $34.5 million fine for market manipulation. But the identical twins, who graduated from Conestoga High School in 1990, say they plan to ignore the fine, which will likely force the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to take them to federal court.

Riverside High will have to forfeit two football victories because it used an ineligible player.

School officials declined to comment, saying that all questions on the matter should be directed to the NJSIAA. "The forfeits will stand," Boyd Sands, the NJSIAA executive director, said yesterday.

Bensalem school officials said last week they were surprised by the quick and large response from teachers to plans for the first graduate-level course to be offered by the school district's Bensalem Academy. Originally, there was to be room for 23 teachers, but the course drew interest from 31 teachers in the first three days it was advertised, Assistant Superintendent David Archibald told the school board Wednesday during the monthly agenda meeting. Because of the surge of interest in the course, called "Writing Across the Curriculum With Computers," the board decided to split the course into two groups to be taught by two computer teachers.

A law signed Thursday by Gov. Christie pushed New Jersey a big step forward in the race to become the first state to erect offshore wind turbines. Legislators said the action could bring hundreds of green-energy jobs to Paulsboro, which they hope will become a hub of turbine manufacturing. Christie hopes to secure the title of first in the nation to attract developers and manufacturers associated with wind power. The law applies the same tool that helped the state become second, behind California, in solar-power.
