In March 1997, more than two decades ago, the Ohio Supreme Court ruled that the way this state funds education is unconstitutional because, it "fails to provide for a thorough and efficient system of common schools." Legislators still haven't agreed on a fix. In a two-part series on The Sound of Ideas, we'll examine school funding and the legacy of DeRolph vs State, the lawsuit that prompted the Supreme Court ruling. Then, civil rights photojournalist Matt Herron discusses the exhibit he curated at the Maltz Museum called, "This Light of Ours." Join us.
