Finally, a constitutional school funding plan has arrived

Katie Johnson – Columbus Dispatch |

“The Fair School Funding Plan provides a constitutional solution to school funding in Ohio. The plan, contained in House Bill 305 and its companion in the Senate, Senate Bill 376, is a definable, defensible and transparent response to the 1997 DeRolph case, which ruled Ohio’s system of funding schools unconstitutional. After 23 years since that decision, the plan delivers the adequate and equitable level of funding necessary to provide appropriate and meaningful opportunities for all public-school students across the state.”
