Nearly 200 interfaith leaders and congregants from Lancaster County traveled to Harrisburg yesterday to advocate for more money for public schools.
Lancaster faith leaders from synagogues, churches and meeting houses were among the estimated 1,000 people who gathered in the Capitol rotunda to rally for fair funding in Pennsylvania schools.
Although Gov. Tom Wolf in 2016 signed into law a new school funding formula, recommended by a bipartisan commission, advocates say school funding still isn’t distributed equally.
Fair funding advocates in Pennsylvania are tired of students missing out on educational opportunities simply because of their geographical location, their skin color or their economic status. But a solution won’t come overnight.
