House Majority Leadership joins community to sound education SOS in Philadelphia

(Jul 31, 2023)

PHILADELPHIA, July 31 – On the first stop of a statewide tour, educators, advocates, labor leaders and concerned parents joined members of the Pennsylvania House Majority Leadership team and the House Majority Policy Committee in seeking answers to repair and reform funding for public schools. “This is not a Republican issue or a Democratic issue, and it is not a city issue or a rural issue – it’s a Pennsylvania issue,” Speaker of the House Joanna McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware, said. “Equitably funding schools is about investing in Pennsylvania’s future and ensuring that every student regardless of the neighborhood they live in has the tools to thrive academically, socially, and civically. Our state’s future starts now, and it’s time to equitably and adequately fund our public schools.” A Commonwealth Court judge ruled in February the state fell short of its constitutional obligation to students in the most underserved school districts , violating students’ rights to a “comprehensive, effective, and contemporary” education. “In Pennsylvania, we have teachers being tasked with leading but lacking even the basic supplies needed to succeed,” Majority Leader Matt Bradford, D-Montgomery, said. “We have schools unable to hire enough counselors and nurses to serve the needs of its children. We have told generations you can achieve if you excel in Read more

HARRISBURG, July 6 – State Rep. Leanne Krueger, D-Delaware, issued the following statement regarding her vote to support the 2023-24 state budget, which is headed to the desk of Gov. Josh Shapiro. “I made the decision to vote yes on this year’s budget after Governor Shapiro made a public pledge to veto the line item for vouchers that had broad opposition in Delaware County. I voted yes for a $1 billion investment in K-12 public schools, including the largest increase in the Basic Education Funding Formula in Pennsylvania history,” Krueger said. “The recent decision from the Commonwealth Court showed that we need to do a lot more to equitably fund our public schools.” Krueger said state funding increases for the school districts she represents are as follows: Chester Upland School District - $11.4 million (11.1% increase). Penn-Delco School District- $751,003 (7.8% increase). Ridley School District- $2.16 million (11.9 % increase). Rose Tree School District- $542,572 (9.6% increase). Wallingford-Swarthmore- $494,301 (7.6% increase). “I also voted yes to help our seniors,” Krueger said. “Pennsylvania's Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program has been expanded by $136 million, increasing the maximum rebate from $650 to $1,000 and the income eligibility cap to $45,000. Close to 175,000 more Pennsylvanians will qualify for this program, and many of the 400,000 seniors who already qualify will see their Read more
