Paying Back School Kids on the Installment Plan – PA Budget Shenanigans

Hey, Kids!
We’re your Pennsylvania Legislature, and we’re here to help!
We just passed a new state budget that puts $200 million more in your classrooms! Isn’t that great!?
Yeah. We know. Your public schools are crumbling to dust, and your school books are falling apart, and you’re stuffed into overcrowded classrooms, and…
But here’s some more money so it’s all better now!
Um. No. It actually doesn’t heal that huge chunk of cash we slashed from public schools six years ago. We’ve been giving you back about $100-200 million a year for a while now, so with this new budget… uh… We’re actually about $150 million short. But we’re good for it!
