Haverford school board lends support to basic ed funding formula

School directors unanimously endorsed a resolution board member Larry Feinberg introduced last week, calling for the General Assembly to take legislative action to establish a basic education funding formula that is equitable, adequate, comprehensive and consistent.

The Delaware County News Network adds that, “the resolution states that the absence of a reliable, fair and transparent formula has resulted in great disparities in how state education funds are distributed to school districts. This has harmed school districts’ ability to fairly and adequately provide resources to meet students’ needs, especially the impoverished and disabled.”
