What are some other expenses the state may have besides school funding?
Schools in low income districts suffer with:
12/19/91 2nd Complaint filed by E&A Coalition in Perry County
10/25/93 Trial begins and lasts 30 days
7/1/94 Judge Lewis found Ohio’s school funding to be unconstitutional
9/10/96 Oral arguments presented before Supreme Court
3/24/97 The Supreme Court ruled funding system unconstitutional
2/18/98 State filed for extension on deadline
3/11/98 Motion for extension denied
9/1/98 Supreme Court rules that State needs to show evidence that the mandates have been fulfilled
5/11/00 Court gives State until 6/15/01 to bring system into compliance
9/6/01 Ohio’s school funding system remains unconstitutional
Hopefully someday all schools across America will be equally funded and able to provide an equal education for all students.
