Pottstown school board member Katina Bearden wants to make sure legislators in Harrisburg hear the call for fair funding of all public schools in Pennsylvania so she joined a group of advocates on the steps of the state capitol Saturday morning to share the stories of students, teachers and community members who live in underfunded school districts.
She was joined by Laura Johnson, Pottstown school board member and leader of the advocacy group, Pennsylvanians for Fair Funding. They told of the few advanced class offerings and the loss of educational opportunities, losing quality educators to higher paying school districts and the tax burden placed on the community. Pottstown school district is one of the leaders in the fight for fair funding and is committed to succeeding in efforts to bring equity to all students and communities.
