Michael Nailor, President of the Pennsylvania School Librarians Association, testifies at a public hearing before the Pennsylvania Basic Education Funding Commission in Lancaster County last December on the vital role that school librarians play providing a quality public school education.

The 15-member commission created by an act of the Pennsylvania Legislature is tasked with developing and recommending to the General Assembly a new formula for basic education to Pennsylvania school districts.

Before making its recommendations to the legislature, the commission is holding a series of hearings around the state, gathering testimony and information from a wide-range of advocates and experts in the education field.
