New education report slams Pennsylvania school funding
March 10, 2017 – The Philadelphia Tribune – by Maya Earls
A recent report by the Education Law Center found years of state underfunding has led to widespread inequalities in Pennsylvania public schools.
Titled “Money Matters in Education Justice: Addressing Race and Class Inequities in Pennsylvania’s Public School System” and released on March 3, the report found those inequalities are felt most by students of color and students in low-income communities.
“Of the funding we have and we do appropriate, Pennsylvania is doing it in ways that reinforce inequality,” said Deborah Gordon Klehr, executive director of the Education Law Center.
