Pennsylvania’s adopted school funding formula confirms 25 years of discrimination
Equality of funding is a fundamental right guaranteed by the Equal Protection Clause
Pennsylvania must immediately fix its discriminatory allocations of funding for education and other government programs
Pennsylvania's adopted Basic Education Funding formula and Special Education Funding formula confirm widespread discriminatory allocations of government funding. In 2016, Equity First was established to fight for equality of funding for all government funding, and end decades of massively biased funding discrimination.
Equity First stands for equality of funding for all distributions of government funding. It’s time to fix 25 years of unfairness.
Equity First’s mission is to raise awareness of the current unfair practice of funding Pennsylvania’s school districts and promote a funding strategy that ensures accountability, transparency, and predictability.
