Analysts say the likelihood of Ohio schools succeeding is a federal appeal of the state’s funding woes is slim at best. The reason? The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1973 that education is not one of the rights recognized by the U.S. Constitution. The Ohio Coalition for Equity and Adequacy of School Funding says it will ask the federal court to review the state’s school-funding lawsuit. The state Supreme Court ended the case last month. Nick Pittner, an attorney representing about 500 schools in Ohio, agrees the appeal is a long shot. He says the U.S. Supreme Court only grants one to two percent of such appeals.
