Pennsylvania’s lawmakers are hurting our children!
Students all over Pennsylvania aren’t getting the funding they deserve.
In 2016, the Fair Funding Formula was passed. This formula was created to ensure that every school district receives state funding based on student and community needs. However, nearly 5 years later, only ‘new’ money added to the education budget has been distributed through that equitable formula. Every year the vast majority of the education budget -well over 5 billion dollars- is distributed without regard to the need of students and their communities.
It’s time for a change.
We can do better.
State lawmakers need to look at the broader picture and enact legislation that delivers equity and opportunity to each student.
Take the fight to the lawmakers!
The only way that we get the justice that our children deserve is to persuade lawmakers to change their minds and vote for fair funding legislation. Although there are lawmakers representing shortchanged districts who have co-sponsored fair funding legislation, there are many who have not.
Pennsylvanians for Fair Funding is a grassroots coalition made up of parents, school board members, teachers, school administrators, and (most importantly) voters who have set out with one goal in mind: 100% fair and equitable education funding for all of our children.
