The Social Policy Committee of the League of Women Voters of Sussex County and the American Association of University Women will be sponsoring a second forum on the topic of the Funding of Public Education in Delaware on Wednesday, December 4, from 6:30 to 8:30 in the County Council Chambers, 2 the Circle, Georgetown. 

This will be a follow-up to the forum held on September 25, which provided information about funding procedures and problems associated with these practices.  That forum answered many questions but uncovered more like these:

What inequities exist in school funding? How do these inequities impact local schools??

What is the genesis of the lawsuit regarding the funding of education which is now before the Court of Chancery?

What solutions might be accomplished through this lawsuit?

Join us to learn the answers to these and other questions at the forum co-sponsored by the LWVSC and AAUW. 

Speakers for the December 4th forum will include:
  • Neil Kirschling, the Director of Policy and Advocacy at Rodel, an organization working to change the education system in Delaware through research, policy, practice, and partnerships. 
  • Richard Morse, Senior Council at Community Legal Aid Society, Inc (CLASI).  CLASI is a plaintiff in the lawsuit currently before the Court of Chancery which addresses education funding inequities and proposes solutions to address these issues.
  • Mark Steele, Superintendent of the Indian River School District

Presentations will be followed by questions from the audience.
