CEE Highlights


The Campaign for Educational Equity is now the
Center for Educational Equity

CEE will continue to pursue our mission to champion children's right to a meaningful opportunity to graduate from high school prepared for college, careers, and civic participation and to define and secure the full range of resources, supports, and services necessary to guarantee this right to all children, particularly children in poverty and children of color.

Our dynamic approach to this work, which combines research, policy development, legal analysis, and public engagement, will remain the same.

Michael Rebell's 2017 Supplement Updates
His Seminal Book, Courts and Kids

Michael Rebell, Teachers College professor of law and educational practice and executive director of the Center for Educational Equity (formerly the Campaign for Educational Equity), has published a new supplement updating his 2009 book, Courts and Kids: Pursuing Educational Equity through the State Courts (Chicago: University of Chicago Press). The 2017 supplement examines the 28 school-funding-adequacy decisions issued by state courts between 2009 and June 30, 2017.

Rebell found that, in recent years, in new cases, the courts have been somewhat less likely to rule in favor of the plaintiffs. Specifically, plaintiffs have prevailed in 47% of the cases decided in the past eight years, compared with winning 67% of the cases between 1989 and 2009. However, courts have consistently enforced compliance with constitutional requirements established in previous cases. So far, 10 court decisions have challenged post-recession reductions in state funding as violating students' educational rights established in previous court rulings, and plaintiffs have prevailed in 9 out of 10 of these decisions.
