Join us for a critically important education event about equitable and reliable public funding. John Patterson, former State Representative (D-Jefferson), will moderate a comprehensive explanation of the Fair School Funding Plan, and how it will transform Ohio's inequitable and inadequate education funding system into a fair, consistent, and sustainable method that will truly serve ALL of Ohio's children. Ohio House Bill 1 sponsors, State Representatives Jamie Callender (R-Concord) and Bride Sweeney (D-Cleveland), will explain why HB1 is a critical priority bill in the Statehouse and school superintendents will share why it is critical for their students and districts. Akron Public Schools Treasurer, Ryan Pendleton, will expertly breakdown the core components of the funding model that make the system equitable.
