Governor Wolf Statement on Supreme Court Ruling on Education Funding

September 28, 2017

Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today released a statement regarding equitable education funding in Pennsylvania following the Supreme Court’s ruling.

“Today’s ruling presents an opportunity to further assure that students in Pennsylvania have access to a fair education system regardless of their zip code,” Governor Wolf said. “While we have made progress to invest hundreds of millions more in our schools and enact a fair funding formula that takes into account the needs of students in their districts, we know more must be done. This ruling validates my long-held position that the commonwealth must further examine the equity and adequacy of public school funding.”

Governor Wolf has steadfastly fought to address education funding in Pennsylvania, especially for struggling and disadvantaged districts, having secured more than $800 million in new funding in the past three years alone.
