SUBJECT:
Governor Corbett’s Proposed Education Budget for 2011-2012

Governor Corbett delivered his 2011-2012 state budget proposal to the General Assembly on March 8.  This Policy Forum is 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.  A representative of the PA Budget and Policy Center will provide an overview of the state’s fiscal situation, a reality that shapes the state budget in any year.  The overviews will be followed by remarks from a panel representing several 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. 

While there is no registration fee, seating is limited and an RSVP is required.


I hope you will be able to join us. 

In addition, please feel free to share this information with colleagues who may like to attend.
