• PA Underfunded $4.6B

  • "Pennsylvania public schools are $4.6 billion short of the state’s own benchmark for adequate funding. A large majority, 59 percent, of school funding in Pennsylvania comes from local governments, resulting in stark differences in resources for public schools based on local wealth. Even the inadequate state funding we do have is distributed inequitably and irrationally, with more than 80 percent of it allocated based on demographic data from 1992, and not based on current need" (Pennsylvania Law Center, 2021).
