Why Pennsylvania's school funding system is on trial [column]

A trial will begin this month in Commonwealth Court in Harrisburg to determine whether Pennsylvania’s funding system meets state constitutional standards. The petitioners include six school districts (including School District of Lancaster), two statewide organizations and several parents.

Pennsylvania contributes just 38% of the costs of K-12 education. Only five states cover a smaller share. The national average is 47%.
