Senior Policy Analyst James Paul asked—and answered—this question and tackled other popular school funding myths in a recent op-ed that appeared in more than 15 newspapersacross the state. If you haven’t read it yet, check it out below…

Are Pennsylvania’s public schools underfunded?

That’s been the central question in Pennsylvania politics for a half-dozen years. But from Gov. Tom Corbett’s first budget to Gov. Tom Wolf’s election—and since—myths have dominated the debate.

During his campaign, Wolf ran on the myth that his predecessor “cut $1 billion” from public schools. The reality, however, is federal funding always known to be temporary expired. Those

LVC note: Without School Property Tax Elimination- You Really Never Own Your Home! Hello,

“Where is Kim Ward?” I heard over and over Thursday night at the Greensburg Garden and Civic Center. Where is she hiding is more like it!

The misinformation and propaganda keeps on coming from Ward’s ivory tower. However, this time she didn’t just send spies…she sent her misinformed minions! The leader even said she was an AFP regional rep…I thought AFP was neutral on 76?

You have to laugh though, these “protesters” had no idea what was in the PTIA 76. After Ron Boltz and Jim Rodkey educated a few of them outside, you should have seen the steam coming from the lead, self-proclaimed, AFP troll!

THE WAR ON HOMEOWNERS CONTINUES! EAST PENN TO REFINANCE DEBT!

East Penn/Emmaus HS Superintendent Schilder

 

The issue of School Real Estate Property Tax Relief has been a hot issue for years and has been getting hotter! Many citizens have been organizing with taxpayer groups across the Commonwealth to pressure State politicians to do something meaningful. Act 76 is one issue that has reached the boiling point. Act 76 would have increased the State Income Tax slightly and the Sales Tax would have seen slight increase in exchange for the ELIMINATION OF SCHOOL PROPERTY TAXES!

Groups opposed to this are the Teacher’s Unions, School Administrators, and the Chamber of Commerce.

If Act 76 had passed, schools could still tax property to pay off debt. That is why school
