(Harrisburg) -- Midstate school districts could receive millions of dollars of funding from a one-time windfall under Governor Corbett's proposal to privatize the sale of wine and liquor in Pennsylvania.

Corbett is touting his "Passport for Learning" block grant program that his administration estimates would raise one billion dollars for education over four years.

The money would come from the sale of liquor licenses, as part of the privatization of the state store system.

Opponents accuse Corbett of using the one-time shot of cash as a political playing card that would not undo damage from previous cuts to education spending.

Here's a look at how much money each central Pennsylvania school district would get under the plan:
