I am working with the Campaign for Fair Education Funding, and I am helping speak out for students across Pennsylvania. I am being compensated, but as always all opinions are my own. #FairFundingPA
There are two types of students in Pennsylvania. The ones who go to schools that are adequately funded, and the ones who attend schools that are struggling to meet their basic needs. There is hope for students at schools that are financially strapped. That help comes in the form of an adequate and equitable Basic Education Funding formula—something the Campaign for Fair Education Funding is striving to achieve. The campaign’s mission is to ensure that Pennsylvania adopts and maintains such a system of funding public education by 2016.
The Campaign for Fair Education Funding is made up of organizations and people (you can hyperlink organizations and people with http://fairfundingpa.org/about/campaign-members.) that, collectively, represent Pennsylvanians from every corner of the state, such as education advocates, teachers and school administrators, church congregations and business leaders.
According to the National Center on Education Statistics’ 2015 report, Pennsylvania has the widest funding gap between wealthy and poor school districts of any state in the country.
