Abstract

In the case DeRolph vs. State of Ohio (1997), the Supreme Court of Ohio determined that Ohio’s system of funding education was unconstitutional due to the failure to create a “thorough and efficient education system”. Today, this system remains in place. The paper explores the way the DeRolph decision contributes to the larger inequalities that exist in our education system. Ultimately, this paper argues that the state’s sanctioning of an inherently unequal funding system contributes to the systematic stratification of socioeconomic groups through school.
