Pennsylvania has the largest funding gap in the country between low-wealth and high-wealth school districts. Pennsylvania is also ranked 46th in the share of funding that comes from the state, leaving local taxpayers to take on rising costs. How did we get here? Join our attorneys for a School Funding Briefing at Drexel Hill Middle School on May 23rd, hosted by the Upper Darby School Board.

At the briefing, you will learn the basics of education funding and how it works in Pennsylvania, as well as ways you can get involved in advocacy for fully funded public education. You will also learn about the latest developments in the Law Center’s school funding lawsuit.

Afterward, you will have a chance to meet Law Center attorneys working on this landmark case, as well as mingle with others interested in Pennsylvania education.

Place: Drexel Hill Middle School, 3001 State Road, Upper Darby, PA 19026

This year, the Public Interest Law Center is looking back on 50 years of fighting for justice, and preparing for 50 more. To celebrate this milestone, we are hosting a series of events throughout the year highlighting our history, our work today, and our plans for the future.

We focus on “securing access to fundamental resources and services.” These resources and services are the foundations people need to build their lives: a voice at the ballot box, safe housing, healthy neighborhoods, quality education, and freedom from discrimination.
