Smart Talk: Education Funding

 

ABC 27’s Dennis Owens guest hosts Smart Talk on Wednesday as we continue with #scottcation. 

Last month the Basic Education Funding Commission unveiled their updated school funding formula after more than a year of work reviewing the process.  The Senate Education Committee crafted a bill around the recommendations made by the Basic Education Funding Commission to more equally distribute resources to schools. The bill was vetoed last week. 

On today’s program we talk with Keystone Crossroads Kevin McCorry joins Dennis Owens to discuss the funding situation for school districts across the commonwealth.  Also in studio will be Senators Mike Folmer (R-48) and Robert Teplitz (D-15) who were part of the Basic Education Commission, John Callahan from the Pennsylvania School Boards Association, and Secretary of Education Pedro Rivera.
