On March 24, 1997, the Ohio Supreme Court issued its first DeRolph v. State of Ohio decision and ruled that Ohio’s system of public school funding is unconstitutional. Twenty-five years later, public education advocates are still at work trying to secure funding legislation that makes a high-quality education possible in every community.

Join us as leaders of those efforts offer a history lesson on school funding and what the DeRolph v. State of Ohio case tells us will make funding legal, an update on the recent progress yet unfinished work of the Fair School Funding Plan, and direction on what we can all do to secure a lasting solution.

This event will feature the below funding champions.

• William Phillis, Ohio Coalition for Equity and Adequacy of School Funding

• Former State Representative John Patterson

Hosted by League of Women Voters of Ohio in partnership with Children’s Defense Fund Ohio, Ohio Conference of the NAACP, Ohio PTA, and Ohio Education Association.
