Urgent: Budget stalemate hurting schools.
Contact your legislators.

On Wednesday, July 29, the Education Law Center of Pennsylvania, in collaboration with the Campaign for Fair Education Funding and Education Voters-PA, will be participating in a statewide call-in day to contact our legislators.

 

Pennsylvania students will begin going back to school in just a month and state lawmakers still have not passed a budget.

 

Please set aside 10 minutes on Wednesday, July 29 to call your state legislators to tell them that we need them to go back to Harrisburg and put Pennsylvania's children first by passing a budget that begins to solve the school funding crisis.

 

To find your legislators, follow this link.

 

We know that just 10 calls in a day to one legislator can make a difference in what he or she does. Please make two phone calls and make a difference for children this year!


 

Mark your calendar today for Wednesday, July 29 and please ask your State Senator and State Representative to: 

  • Commit to a significant new investment in basic education funding in this year's budget, with at least $410 million in new dollars to help restore past funding cuts, targeted at bringing districts back to the 2010 funding level as a base year, and begin implementation of the Basic Education Funding Commission formula.
  • Put Pennsylvania's children first: Go back to Harrisburg to pass a budget that is good for all of Pennsylvania's students.

 

Want to double your impact?  Ask a friend to make a call too! 

 

Please take 5-10 minutes on Wednesday, July 29 to help ensure a bright future for Pennsylvania!
