Public forum will offer taxpayers an important chance to engage in school funding debate

The bipartisan legislative Basic Education Funding Commission is trying to come up with a formula for funding the commonwealth's school districts. Lancaster County's own Sen. Lloyd Smucker and Rep. Mike Sturla sit on that commission, as doesActing Education Secretary Pedro Rivera, former School District of Lancaster superintendent.
Pennsylvania is one of just three states that do not have a school funding formula based on student enrollment and characteristics.
