Tom Wolf disastrous school funding plan would result in aggregate school funding losses in 43 counties.
“Gov. Wolf believes it’s OK to take education dollars meant for students in three-quarters of our school districts in Pennsylvania and use them to reward the people who voted for him," Wagner said at the news conference, flanked by Republican Party chairman Val DiGiorgio and other state party officials.
The hypothetical situation would reduce Allegheny County’s funding by $91 million and would reduce funding for school districts in 42 other Pennsylvania counties, a GOP analysis found. Such a change would increase funding for districts with growing populations, including many in the southeastern part of the state.
“The state GOP accuses Wolf of wanting to end that so-called “hold harmless” enrollment funding method, a change it claims would siphon $1 billion from rural school districts and redistribute it to Philadelphia and other more populated areas... Wagner’s claims have put Wolf’s camp on the school-funding defensive"
"Although the buzzwords ‘fair funding,’ and ‘formula’ may sound appealing at first glance, this new proposal would harm a great deal of Pennsylvania school districts. Wolf’s plan would heavily re-distribute funds from rural school districts, and leave the children in these districts who rely on these funds at the will of Governor Wolf and his allies’ left-wing agenda, which does not truly seek a fair proportion of education funding and does not care to see rural school districts flourish."
