Pennsylvania is one of only three states that does not have a predictable funding formula for education. Every year it changes, causing uncertainty to school districts and exacerbating inequities.
A+ Schools is part of the Campaign for Fair Education Funding here in Pennsylvania. The Campaign proposed a student-driven funding formula for basic education that strategically directs resources to students and school districts with the greatest needs and provides the investment necessary to enable every child to succeed academically.
The Governor’s proposed budget goes a long way to starting to address some of the issues the Campaign has raised in its proposal, but we need to make sure that there’s a long term solution in the form of a funding formula for our children.
Call your legislator and tell her/him that you support the Campaign for Fair Education Funding’s proposal.
