Online Resource: Potential Cuts to Public Education by House District & School District

From the Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center (http://www.pennbpc.org):

PBPC has created an interactive spreadsheet (http://pachoice.org/potential-education-cuts-pa/) that projects the financial losses to school districts (& to House districts based on the SDs within them) of 12% across-the-board cuts to Basic Education Funding, the Ready to Learn Block Grant, and Special Education Funding from levels approved in June by the General Assembly. A 12% across-the-board cut has been discussed as one of the potential consequences that could occur if a complete revenue plan is not enacted soon. This online tool allows people to see potential cuts to their school district on the second tab, and the total cuts to the school districts in their House district on the first tab. People should feel free to use these numbers in communications with state reps and in LTEs/op-eds.
