We Need Your Help for Fair FundingLeave a Comment
Every Pennsylvania student deserves a quality education no matter where that student lives. But Pennsylvania’s public school funding system is failing our children:
- It does not provide enough resources to educate all students to academic standards.
- It contributes to deficiencies in equal opportunity based on factors like income and race.
- It is so unpredictable that school districts cannot effectively budget or plan.
That’s why A+ Schools has joined the Campaign for Fair Education Funding – an unprecedented coalition of more than 50 organizations from across Pennsylvania – to ensure that Pennsylvania adopts and maintains an adequate and equitable system of funding our schools by 2016.
We need you to join, too.
The campaign’s proposed formula could enable every child to meet state academic standards, be prepared for post-secondary success, and become productive, knowledgeable, and engaged adults.
