Over time, school districts will receive much less funding than they would under the current system.
Hear firsthand from Mark Ryan of the Independent Fiscal Office and Sharon Ward of the Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center about the fiscal impact of these proposals on Pennsylvania's school districts.
