Is School Funding Fair? ELC's National Report Card rates all 50 states on the basis of four separate fairness indicators.
ELC is a founding partner in a non-partisan coalition of education stakeholders whose mission is to bring equity to the distribution of school funding in Nevada.
ELC represents over 300,000 low-income NJ schoolchildren in the Abbott v. Burke litigation. The Abbott decisions have been called the most important equal education rulings since Brown v. Board of Education.
The Governor’s irresponsible and unconstitutional school funding plan is not only the opposite of fairness, it is a complete non-starter for many reasons.
A preliminary analysis of the partial data provided by NJDOE as required by the settlement agreement to resolve a lawsuit over new high school graduation policies reveals several significant trends.
ELC welcomes the Senate President’s pledge to fully fund all school districts statewide, however there is no need for a Commission to get the job done.
AQE has filed an amicus brief prepared by ELC in support of NY teachers in a pending appeal of two consolidated lawsuits that are a copycat of the unsuccesful California Vergara case.
The Senate Education Committee recently took an important step by unanimously approving S2081, which bans public school expulsions and suspensions for students in preschool through second grade.
