THORNDALE, Pa. (AP) — Gov. Tom Wolf will kick off a statewide “Schools that Teach Tour” and outline a forthcoming proposal to the Legislature to increase taxes on Pennsylvania’s natural gas industry to help boost aid to public schools.

 

Wolf, a Democrat, will appear Wednesday at Caln Elementary School in Thorndale, outside Coatesville in Chester County.

 

Wolf pledged during his campaign for governor to impose a 5 percent severance to help wipe out cuts in public school aid under his predecessor, Republican Tom Corbett.
