Public Interest Law Center Joins Philadelphia Education Fund And Others In Call To Support School Funding

In response to cuts of $1 billion from funding for basic education in Governor Corbett’s proposed budget, the Law Center has joined with the Philadelphia Education Fund and twelve other advocacy groups calling on state officials to maintain strong funding for Pennsylvania school districts.

In an op-ed written on behalf of this coalition of advocacy groups and published on March 13 in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Education Fund Director Carol Fixman argues that “[t]here is no better investment in our city, our region, and our state” than strong support for our public schools. As the op-ed explains, increased funding over the past eight years has led to dramatically improved outcomes for students in Pennsylvania, especially in Philadelphia, and only with continued support and accountability can public schools continue on this trajectory.
