Law Center to be Honored at “Turning the Page for Change” Event

The Philadelphia Public School Notebook will honor the Law Center, the Education Law Center, and O’Melveny & Myers LLP at its annual fundraiser, “Turning the Page for Change.” The fundraiser, where more than 400 public school supporters gather in celebration at the end of the school year, will be held on June 6, 2017, at the University for the Arts in Philadelphia.

We and the other two organizations are being honored for our School Funding Lawsuit that we filed on behalf of six school districts and seven parents. Currently awaiting a decision before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, the lawsuit argues that the General Assembly and governor are evading their constitutional responsibility to guarantee a “thorough and efficient” education for all of Pennsylvania’s schoolchildren.
