The Campaign for Fair Education Funding Proposal

Every Pennsylvania student deserves a quality education
no matter where that student lives

But Pennsylvania’s system for funding public schools is broken:

  • We are one of only three states without a basic education funding formula to distribute adequate resources both fairly and predictably.
  • Pennsylvania has the widest funding gap between wealthy and poor school districts of any state in the country. Per pupil spending in PA’s poorest districts is 33% less than in PA’s wealthiest districts. [NCES 2015]
  • The absence of a funding formula, combined with state funding cuts in recent years, hits our students hard.
