New Special Ed Funding Comm. Wants Feds To Keep Promises

Pennsylvania's Special Education Funding Commission is in place, and it will soon begin hearings. The Commission’s task has its sights set on changing the current funding method, which allocates funds based on a set percentage of a school district's enrollment. State Rep. Bernie O'neill has been calling for the move for years. He says the current system was not set-up to cope with school districts that struggle with higher special education funding costs. O’neill adds, the Feds need to re-evaluate the system.

“Under their law, it says they will get every school district, a minimum of 40-percent of the special-ed cost or more, but never less than 40-percent. The Federal Government has never kept that promise.”

O’neill, a 24th district Bucks County Republican, will serve as the Co-chairman of the Special Education Funding Commission, which consists of 15-members, including lawmakers, cabinet and education officials. The commission will make its recommendations by November.
