Public Hearing on Funding for PA Schools
On Thursday, April 2 from 1:00-4:00 PM the The Urban Affairs and Education Committees of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives will hold a joint hearing in the Lehigh Valley on the status of schools in third-class cities in Pennsylvania. The hearing will focus on Pennsylvania’s system of education finance and the disadvantage cities face with declining tax revenue as families have out-migrated to the suburbs. Leaders from the Lehigh Valley, including Alan Jennings, the Executive Director of the Community Action Committee of the Lehigh Valley (CACLV) and board member of RenewLV, will testify at the hearing.
