About this Episode

Public schools in PA aren't fairly funded, and this has been the case for decades. In episode one of Underfunded, hosted by education journalists Melanie Bavaria and Meg St-Esprit, we take a look at what it's really like on the ground right now, for teachers, kids and communities. Along the way, we'll talk with educators, community organizers, and legal experts who confront daily the struggle of educating in a massively underfunded environment.

Underfunded is a project of the Publc Interest Law Center, with a grant from the William Penn Foundation. For more information on the fight to fairly fund public schools in PA, and ways to get involved, visit: fundourschoolspa.org.
