Congressman Schlossberg asks schools for more money and admits that getting there can be difficult | Lehigh Valley regional news

How Brazil is reforming a public fund to finance broadband expansion

But not everyone is on board.  Allentown would get an additional $6.5 million. Bethlehem would get $2.5 million. “These school districts that Rep. Schlossberg is trying to help already get the largest proportion of state funding sent to them,” said Jason Gottesman, Spokesperson for the PA House Republican Caucus. 

“{It would} provide supplemental funding to the poorest districts in the state. Locally, that means Allentown and Bethlehem,” said Schlossberg (D-132).  Schlossberg has introduced legislation that would funnel more dollars to disadvantaged districts. 

The plan would divvy up $100 million to those 100 schools.  Schlossberg said though the districts are separated by Cedar Crest Boulevard, the difference in resources between the two is drastic. He jokingly relayed how his wife, a teacher in ASD, relies on windows as her HVAC system. 

“Candidly, that’s the magic question,” Schlossberg said.  Schlossberg said his plan wouldn’t take money away from any districts.  “Really, the key is where does that hundred million dollars come from?” said Pa. Rep. Doyle Heffley (R-122). 

There are other criticisms of the proposal.  Gottesman said school spending in Pa. is already at an all-time high.
