  •  Education funding in PA (7+ / 0-)

    Is a horror show. We base local funding on propery taxes, not the ability to pay. Our state income tax used to cover 70% of educational costs, now its between 30-35%. We created a nonsense charter system that works on 68% of per pupil costs from sending districts and allows any Tom, Dick, and Harry to open a school. Now throw in a voucher system and you're looking at another layer of problems in trying to get enough $ into the system to educate all of the children in this state.
