We Need Your Help to Stop it
Chad Readler, chairman of the Commission’s education sub-committee, has proposed the elimination of the language that protects the rights of Ohio’s students to a quality education. Specifically, it would do away with the "thorough and efficient” language in Article VI of the Ohio Constitution that was the basis for the Ohio Supreme Court’s 1997 DeRolph decision that instructed the legislature to fix the way in which the state’s public schools are funded.
This is an outrageous move. It is unimaginable that there would be NO constitutional standard for public education in Ohio. This is a blatant move by those who wish to privatize and ultimately destroy public education.
