Isolationist policies with each minor municipality demanding to provide their own version of "public education" are part of the reason that residents are overtaxed. We need to change the way in which schools are funded in Pennsylvania and school districts need to consolidate or find new ways to cooperate to reduce costs and provide a more equitable education to all of the children in this state.
