Boyd invites public to discuss state education funding efforts on Feb. 20

UPPER DARBY TWP., Feb. 13 – State Rep. Heather Boyd invites the public to discuss the ongoing push for more state basic education funding at a town hall event Feb. 20.

The discussion will take place at the Upper Darby Township Sellers Library – Primos Branch from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

“The Basic Education Funding Commission met for months, hearing testimony across the state and determined that our state needs to invest more than five billion dollars in our public schools to achieve equity and to fulfill our constitutional responsibility to our kids,” said Boyd, D-Delaware. “Our school districts and our local taxpayers have felt the pain of decades of chronic underfunding. Join me to discuss this new proposal that centers equity for our students, our schools and our taxpayers.”

Interested attendees are asked to RSVP by calling Boyd’s office at (484) 200-8262 or emailing
