POWER Interfaith will conduct a coordinated statewide action Tuesday to directly address four PA legislators with this message:

THERE ARE NO MORE EXCUSES!  

After years of denying budget requests, the state of Pennsylvania has raised more than enough revenue to finally fully fund public K-12 education, eliminate racial inequity in the current funding, and decrease school districts’ need to raise local property taxes.

POWER Interfaith, a statewide organization touching children in more than a dozen school districts, demands that:

  • These four legislators as well as the PA General Assembly pass the Governor’s education budget proposals. 
  • The General Assembly allocate at least $800 million of American Rescue Plan funds for school facilities investment and an end to toxic school buildings and crumbling school infrastructure.

After years of denying budget requests, the state of Pennsylvania has raised more than enough revenue to finally fully fund public K-12 education, eliminate racial inequity in the current funding, and decrease school districts’ need to raise local property taxes.
