In February 2023, the Commonwealth Court ruled after a lengthy trial that Pennsylvania’s public school funding system is unconstitutional. In January 2024, a report adopted by a majority of the Basic Education Funding Commission made it clear that elected officials must provide billions in new state dollars over the next seven years to ensure our school funding system passes constitutional muster.
PA’s students have waited decades for policymakers to take bold action to address school funding equity. Fixing PA’s broken public school funding system must be a top priority in Harrisburg.
Setting a statewide $60,000 minimum salary, paid for with state funds over five years, would increase 15,390 educators’ salaries to $60,000. This is one of PSEA’s top legislative priorities and it is a key way to address the school staff shortage crisis.

PSEA has established a Task Force on Racial Justice and Equity in PSEA (Task Force) charged with:
1) Developing a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Statement for the Board’s consideration, and;
2) Overseeing an equity assessment of PSEA’s organizational operations, policies, and practices. The first step – the development and adoption of a DEI Statement - is foundational for ensuring PSEA’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion are realized in our culture, practices, and policies.
