PA school funding increase a 'temporary reprieve'

Share This

AFT President Ted Kirsch released a statement today on Governor Wolf's decision to allow House Bill 1801, the General Fund Budget, become law without his signature.

“Today, Governor Wolf did what was necessary to keep schools from closing, but it is only a temporary reprieve from the disaster awaiting Pennsylvania’s public schools if lawmakers continue to under fund public education. The Legislature is going to have to pass new and sustainable revenues for 2016-2017 to provide Pennsylvanians with the public services they need and children with the education they deserve.”
