HARRISBURG (AP) – A trial over how PA funds public education is over, but it will be months before a judge rules in the case brought by a group of poorer school districts against state legislative leaders. Final argument was held in the Commonwealth Court case that was filed eight years ago by the districts, some parents, and two organizations. They’re challenging the size and distribution of subsidies approved annually by the General Assembly. The plaintiffs argue the current system denies students the “thorough and efficient system of public education” mandated by the PA Constitution. The top-ranking Republican leaders in the state House and Senate say funding has been growing and is adequate.
