Special Town Hall Meeting on Educational Funding

Come out to hear about Educational Funding and why certain schools receive more or less dollars per student. There is a formula in place currently that is being argued in front of the PA Supreme Court as unconstitutional and biased. How will this formula be affected by the pending educational tax bill? Will have an Attorney and an Advocate from PCCY (Public Citizens for Children and Youth) on the panel to give facts and take questions.

 

Location Temple Beth Chaim Sanctuary

 

PA is 1 of only 3 states that does not have a funding formula for its public schools. Without a fair funding formula, school district in Southeastern PA have $293 million less in state funding than in 2010. Leading national research shows that when states invest just 10% more in underfunded schools, children get better education and earn nearly 10% more.
