PA Governor Calls For Drastic School Funding Shake-Up

KEYSTONE CROSSROADS — Governor Tom Wolf called for a major change to the way Pennsylvania funds schools Friday, advocating for the state to distribute its largest pot of school money in a way that would benefit the majority of students in the state, but would likely cause deep cuts in many districts.

During questions at press conference in Philadelphia, Wolf said the state should push all basic education money through the formula it adopted two years ago.

The formula takes into account things like poverty, actual student enrollment and tax effort, and has only been used so far to distribute increases in state education funds since 2015 — only 8 percent of the total.

Wolf’s remarks seemed unplanned, as the event of the day pertained to new money for lead paint abatement in the School District of Philadelphia.

“We need a fair funding formula for all dollars going into public education,” Wolf said in response to a question from Keystone Crossroads.

In what way do you think the Fed is being fair / unfair re:AIG 'emergency funding'?


Fair, not unfair
Had they not stepped in to prop up AIG there would have been devastating negative consequences in the international capital markets. AIG insured many mortgages which are in default.
