Call your lawmakers and ask them to go back to Harrisburg to pass a budget that is good for all of PA's students
Please call your your state lawmakers and ask them to:
- Go back to Harrisburg to pass a budget that begins to solve the state’s public school funding crisis, which is causing layoffs and cuts in academic programs at school districts across the state.
- Enact the school funding formula unanimously approved by the bipartisan Basic Education Funding Commission to address the wide gap in funding between school districts in Pennsylvania, which is the worst of any state in the country.
- Commit to a significant new investment in basic education funding in this year’s budget, with at least $410 million in new dollars to help restore past funding cuts, targeted at bringing districts back to the 2010 funding level as a base year, and begin implementation of the Basic Education Funding Commission formula.
- Put Pennsylvania’s children first: Get back to work and pass a budget that is good for all of Pennsylvania’s students.
