Jim Brewster (D-Allegheny) met with state Education Secretary Ron Tomalis asking for information on all school districts that have been designated for financial watch status or identified for monitoring.</p><p>The problem, however, isn’t that the Department of Education (DOE) is withholding a list from the senator, but Tomalis told Brewster the problem is there currently is no complied list of schools in trouble.</p> Fri, 26 Apr 2013 17:37:18 +0000 Jared Adkins 8540 at http://wesa.fm
