Pennsylvania Basic Education Funding Commission Holds Educational Session at Parkland

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Pennsylvania Basic Education Funding Commission is touring the state, gathering information from  diverse groups in public education about how to more equitably fund Pennsylvania’s school districts.  In September, the Commission held
their hearing in Parkland School District where Roberta Marcus, Master School Board Director and President of the Parkland Board of School Directors, testified before the Commissioners from across the state, pleading for state officials to create a predictable
funding stream that school districts can rely on when planning for their budgets.  She was joined by Superintendents from the local region and a fellow school board president from Bethlehem.  Also testifying that day was Dr. Marguerite Roza, director of Georgetown’s
Edunomics Lab and a research associate professor who gave insight to an alternative way to fund schools across the state.
