Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Pennsylvania’s Public Education System

Introduction

As the Republican House members on the Basic Education Funding Commission, we, Republican chairman of the House Education Committee Jesse Topper of Bedford and Reps. Jason Ortitay (R-Washington/Allegheny) and Ryan Warner (R-Fayette), recognize the challenges faced within Pennsylvania’s current system of public education. However, we also acknowledge the tremendous opportunity we have to provide transformational change to this system through the recommendations of this commission.

Driving Tax Dollars to Local School Districts

Our primary goal is to determine the best way to drive tax dollars from the state to local school districts. We understand that there are no easy solutions to this challenge, but we are committed to finding innovative approaches that align with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

  2. Zero Hunger
  3. Good Health and Well-being
  4. Quality Education
