Education Law Center
Meet Us in Court on March 11th

On Wednesday, March 11th at 9:30 a.m., the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania will hear oral arguments in our school funding lawsuit which challenges the legislature's failure to adequately support and maintain Pennsylvania's public school system. This historic case, which the Education Law Center filed with the Public Interest Law Center of Philadelphia and pro bono counsel O'Melveny & Meyers, asks the Court to ensure that all students -- including those living in low-wealth districts -- have the basic resources they need to meet state academic standards. We ask the court to hear this case and enforce the rights of our children to a "thorough and efficient" system of public education as guaranteed to them by our state constitution.

Please come and support us as we fight for vulnerable students and all public school students across the state. The hearing will be held at the Pennsylvania Judicial Center, 601 Commonwealth Avenue, Courtroom 5001 in Harrisburg, PA.  If you plan to attend or have questions, contact Spencer Malloy at (The courtroom is walking distance from the Harrisburg Amtrak Station.) 

If you can't make the hearing in Harrisburg, you can still help us fight for a fair education for every child in Pennsylvania by donating to the Education Law Center. Your support helps fund our litigation and all of the work we do on behalf of vulnerable children who desperately need our voice and advocacy. 


Thank you for your continued support of our efforts to ensure that each child in Pennsylvania has access to a quality public education. We hope to see you there!
