Pennsylvania has a new funding formula for basic education that will more fairly distribute money to school districts based on their unique needs. The new formula figures out how the state will divide $5.5 billion in basic education funding each year, using factors such as the number of students in poverty, the district's wealth and ability to raise revenue, and the number of students who speak English or attend charter schools. Senate Education Committee Chairs, Lloyd Smucker and Andy Dinniman, will be guests on PCN to discuss the new formula and how it will work with the budget. Call 1-877-PA6-5001 with your questions.
