EPLC Pennsylvania Education Policy Forum in Pittsburgh

February 23, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

Governor Wolf will deliver his 2017-2018 state budget proposal to the General Assembly on February 7. This policy forum will provide an early opportunity to get up-to-date information about what is in the proposed education budget, the budget’s relative strengths and weaknesses, and key issues.

Ron Cowell of EPLC will provide an overview of the Governor’s proposed budget for early education, K-12 and higher education. The overview will be followed by remarks from a panel representing statewide and regional perspectives concerning state funding for education and education-related items. These speakers will discuss the impact of the Governor’s proposals and identify the key issues that will likely be considered during this year’s budget debate.

Statewide and Regional Perspectives Will Be Provided By:
Dr. Linda B. Hippert, Executive Director, Allegheny Intermediate Unit #3
Cheryl Kleiman, Staff Attorney, Education Law Center
Ashley Lenker White, Senior Director of Government Affairs, Pennsylvania School Boards Association
A representative of the Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators
