      4. I-2.  Supports legislation that establishes a K-12 education funding system that is built upon the principles of equity, adequacy, efficiency, accountability and predictability; uses a statewide funding formula for school district subsidy that recognizes the number of students taught, the relative wealth of a district, the local tax effort and the actual costs of educating every student to achieve Pennsylvania's academic standards; and requires the state to fund 100% of all budgeted subsidy payments on a timely basis.
