Equity and Adequacy in Ohio School Funding
Johnson, Justin L.; Vesely, Randall S.
Leadership and Research in Education, v4 n1 p90-105 2017
This article explores state school funding in Ohio and examines the concepts of equity and adequacy. This is accomplished not by conducting an empirical study but through a thorough review of the current environment of school funding in the state. For Ohio, the concepts of equity and adequacy are especially pertinent when considering that Ohio's funding methods for public education have been found unconstitutional more than once. Recent trends in policy as well as current research are used in determining if Ohio is funding education at necessary levels to provide an adequate and equitable education for all students. Because current education reforms provide a more relevant context for equity and adequacy concerns to policy makers, a review of these reforms, their implications, and how the state ensures that education funding is both equitable and adequate is addressed.
