Gov. Wolf's Education Plan Makes Historic $1.3 Billion Investment in Public Schools

Continuing to make the future of Pennsylvania's students a priority, Governor Tom Wolf's 2021 agenda makes a historic $1.3 billion investment in public schools and creates fairness in education funding, while cutting taxes for working families and businesses.

The governor was joined for a virtual press conference by state Rep. Chris Rabb, Acting Education Secretary Noe Ortega and Allentown School District Superintendent Thomas Parker.

"Pennsylvania's school funding system is unfair to students, teachers and communities," said Gov. Wolf. "The state still largely funds schools based on student enrollment from 30 years ago, which underfunds growing districts from our small towns to our big cities. My common sense plan restores fairness to school funding to ensure every community can provide the quality education students need to succeed in life."
