PA Supreme Court opens education funding lawsuit

The battle over whether or not fair and equal funding is provided to each and every one of Pennsylvania’s school districts is a critical debate that has recently resurfaced in the legal realm.

The PA Supreme Court recently ruled in favor of reinstating a lawsuit filed by a number of school districts against state officials regarding education funding disparities in our schools.

The William Penn School District et al. v. the Pennsylvania Department of Education et al. case focuses on equal protection and the education clause in the Constitution. The court will be responsible for determining whether the state’s education funding formula is unjust and in violation of the education clause laid out in the Constitution.

Finding a more equitable way to fund our public schools is not a new concept, which is why I have constantly stated that completely eliminating the school property tax is a win-win situation not only for taxpayers, but also for our schools.
