Witnesses testify in Pennsylvania school funding lawsuit, decision still weeks away
Education funding lawsuit is challenging whether the state is upholding its constitution in providing a ‘thorough and efficient system of public education’
A lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of how the state funds schools is underway, seven years in the making; a new documentary film examines the impact of non-profit hospitals, U.S. health care system and Pittsburgh entities on its patients; and a rundown of the holiday-themed happenings in the region.
A landmark case is underway in Commonwealth Court on how the state funds school districts. The plaintiffs argue the government has underfunded certain districts so much that the state has violated its own constitution.
