Questions we will answer include:
  • How are schools funded in PA?
  • Who decides how much funding my local schools get?
  • What is the Basic Education Funding Formula (fair funding formula)?
  • Why does Pennsylvania have the widest funding gap between wealthy and poor school districts of any state in the country?
  • How are charter schools funded and how can the current system be reformed?
  • How can I most effectively advocate for the school funding students in my district and throughout Pennsylvania’s need and deserve?

We will also provide a brief update on Pennsylvania’s school funding lawsuit, which is scheduled to go to trial this year. (Visit www.FundOurSchoolsPa.org to learn more!) And we’ll have plenty of time for Q&A.

I hope that you’ll join us and/or share this invitation with people in your network who are interested in learning more and getting involved.

Thank you!
