Tell your lawmakers to ensure that the budget deal includes $410 million for schools and adopts the Basic Education Funding Commission's formula.
It is clear that the only thing that will force lawmakers to move their positions is MORE public pressure and direct contact from voters at home.
Governor Wolf has made significant concessions on key issues, but continues to stand firm that PA must close the $2 billion structural deficit in its budget and restore funding to education to pre-Corbett levels this year so we can move toward getting schools on track in the future.
Lawmakers must step up and support a budget that restores $410 million in new state funding for schools and adopts the formula recommended by the Basic Education Funding Commission.
They must also support a reasonable revenue package to ensure we have the funding to do it and that we aren’t short changing kids because lawmakers are too afraid to cast tough votes.
