State Senator Lisa Boscola’s OP-ED on School Funding Formula

Antiquated Basic Education Funding Formula is Hurting Lehigh Valley Homeowners and Students

Op-Ed Column by State Senator Lisa Boscola

The Basic Education Funding Formula is the single largest education funding stream in the commonwealth’s budget. Until 2014, each year when the General Assembly passed a budget it distributed basic education funding dollars to our school districts based on what they received the year before — regardless of whether the student population grew or shrank. This led to large

disparities throughout the state when it came to where money went versus where it was needed. Some school districts received over 70 percent of their funding for their school programs from the state while other school districts received as low as

East Penn School District–Parents Be Aware of What is going on!

Dear LVC Editor,

As Taxpayers in the Lehigh Valley, we should know how our Tax dollars are spent in our schools We have documentation of the Activism going on in the East Penn Schools that our taxes are being spent on. I don’t know about you, but all the dollars I pay to that district are meant for Academic Excellence not Activism. Teachers who are advisors to these Activist Clubs are not paid to be promoting Activism but to teach and prepare our children to succeed in their futures by imparting knowledge and accomplishments in the subjects they are paid to teach and to develop academic excellence on the part of our students. Did you know that Emmaus High School is OFF LIMITS

Why Millions Of Kids Can’t Read And What Better Teaching Can Do About It

Share

By Emily Hanford of American Public Media

Jack Silva didn’t know anything about how children learn to read. What he did know is that a lot of students in his district were struggling.

Silva is the chief academic officer for Bethlehem, Pa., public schools. In 2015, only 56 percent of third-graders were scoring proficient on the state reading test. That year, he set out to do something about that.

“It was really looking yourself in the mirror and saying, ‘Which 4 in 10 students don’t deserve to learn to read?’ ” he recalls.

Bethlehem is not an outlier. Across the country, millions of kids are struggling. According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress, 32 percent of fourth-graders and 24 percent

An examination of the Property Tax Independence Act

Share

The following analysis of the Property Tax Independence Act, HB & SB 76 was written by Robert S. Kistler – an extremely knowledgeable and very active member of the Pennsylvania Taxpayers Cyber Coalition. The battle over property tax elimination rages on in Pennsylvania. The unfortunate but predictable side is that there is much misinformation that continues to be spread about HB/SB 76, the “Property Tax Independence Act”, despite the fact that the bill has been around for years. Some of the misinformation is born from lack of understanding the bill, the rumor mill, and half truths. However, there is also a dark side to this battle, a well planned and orchestrated intentional negative propaganda campaign with regard to the bill. With November elections nearing
