Join Education Voters PA and our special guests to learn about charter school special education funding; Register for Thursday, April 8 at 7:00 pm Special education funding for charter schools is a hot topic in Harrisburg. For the first time ever, we have a real chance to fix Pennsylvania’s charter school law to eliminate profits that charter schools reap off of special education tuition payments and to increase school choice for students with disabilities. We are delighted to invite you to learn more about this issue from Ed Voters and to hear directly from state lawmakers who are champions of reforms that will benefit taxpayers and students. We can get charter school funding reforms across the finish line this year, but we need your help. The charter school industry is fighting tooth and nail to keep their carve-out from Pennsylvania’s special education funding formula. The current law is a cash cow that provides charters with excess special education funding that they can spend on whatever they want. Register to join us for the event below: · Or Thursday, April 8 at 12:00 pm, State Representative Dan Miller, who has been fighting for the rights of students with disabilities for almost ten years, and Lisa Lightner, parent, and advocate for students with disabilities, who has seen firsthand the negative impact this funding system has on students, will join us.
