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.
An ELC analysis of the most recently available, audited school budgets shows many NJ charter schools carry a significant amount of surplus fund balance.
ELC, along with a dozen other organizations, testified before the NJ Senate Education Committee about the proven benefits of the nationally acclaimed Abbott preschool program.
ELC and several Pennsylvania organizations filed an amicus brief in support of the plaintiffs in William Penn School District v. State, a school funding and educational opportunity case.
The Washington Supreme Court voided the state's charter school statute because it circumvents local control and diverts education funds away from district schools, in violation of the state constitution.
Several Nevada public school parents represented by ELC and pro bono counsel in Las Vegas and Los Angeles have filed a lawsuit opposing the state’s new voucher program.
