Nearly a quarter century after the DeRolph v. Ohio decision, many still assume that the state’s school funding system is unconstitutional.
In fact, the much-discussed Cupp-Patterson school funding plan has been billed by some as the long-awaited constitutional system. But is the “unconstitutional” label still a fair characterization of Ohio’s current funding arrangements?
Our new analysis, Is Ohio’s School Funding System Still Unconstitutional? digs into the important questions that continue to be asked about school funding in Ohio:
- Is Ohio’s school funding system adequate?
- Does Ohio rely excessively on property taxes?
- Is Ohio’s school funding system equitable?
- Is school choice eroding district funding in Ohio?
We urge you to download the report and decide for yourself.
