Dinniman to examine education
DOWNINGTOWN Democratic State Sen. Andrew Dinniman will host a roundtable discussion next week with the goal of taking a broad look at funding challenges facing the state's education system, according to his office.
"The end goal is to get some solutions out there, especially related to some sort of a fair and equitable funding formula that doesn't just focus on a cities perspective and doesn't just focus on a suburbs perspective," said spokesman Adam Cirucci.
The panel will include education professionals from across the region, including Bill LaCoff, president-elect of the Pennsylvania School Board Association; Joseph J. O'Brien, the Chester County Intermediate Unit executive director; and Korri Brown, the Pennsylvania State Education Association Southeast Region president.
The event is set to take place Wednesday from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the Technical College High School's Brandywine Campus, 443 Boot Rd., Downingtown. It will also be live streamed on CCiTV, according to Dinniman's office. Questions can be submitted at the event or in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions will also be taken on Twitter during the event by tweeting to @SenatorDinniman. - Tricia L. Nadolny
