Charter school supporters rally against proposed funding cuts

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) - Hundreds of supporters of charter schools throughout Pennsylvania took to the State Capitol Monday to push for lawmakers to increase funding for their schools.

Advocates have been ramping up opposition to two bills that would reduce money given to charter school by almost 25 percent.

Supporters of charter schools say many of them can't afford such funding cuts and will have no option but to close their doors.

According to a state study, $4 billion is already funneled to charter schools.
