Commonwealth Court has ruled that Pennsylvania’s constitution requires us to give every child access to a quality public education.
Our current system for funding schools does not do that and is unconstitutional.
It isn’t fair that while some students start school with a new MacBook, others just a few miles away start school forced to share a math book. And it isn’t fair that in some communities, funding for schools requires a much heavier burden on local taxpayers than in other communities.
It’s time to take steps toward fixing our broken and unconstitutional public school funding system. Making sure every child has equal educational resources and opportunities, no matter where they live, is key to the future success of our kids, their communities, and our commonwealth.
It’s time to stop leaving millions of Pennsylvania children behind. Pass legislation that finally gives every child in Pennsylvania the thorough and efficient education we have promised them, and that they deserve.
