I will continue to fight to ensure that all children, despite their zip code, will receive the education that they deserve.”On June 2, 2016, Governor Tom Wolf signed House Bill 1552 into law, which established a fair funding formula. House Bill 1552, now Act 35, establishes a fair, equitable formula for allocating new state funds to Pennsylvania schools. The Basic Education Funding Formula accounts for district-based factors including the wealth of the district, the district’s current tax effort, and the ability of the district to raise revenue.Funding for all of Pennsylvania schools has always been a Governor Wolf’s top priority. In this year’s budget, Governor Wolf secured an additional $200 million in basic education funding, as well as a $30 million increase for early childhood education, a $20 million increase for special education, a $10 million increase for early intervention, and a nearly $40 million increase for higher education. Working with the legislature, Governor Wolf secured historic increases at all levels of education in less than two years:$415 million in basic education funding.$60 million for early childhood education.$50 million in special education funding.$14.6 million for early intervention.$81.4 million for PASSHE and state-related schools.$16.4 million for Community Colleges December 19, 2016 SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
