Ohio Constitution 6 Education For All
Education for All (3:57 minutes)

Using your rights responsibly required that you be education. Caleb Atwater, Samuel Lewis and Calvin Stowe were behind common schools in Ohio. The 1851 Ohio Constitution guarantees there will be state funding for public education for Ohioans.

The Ohio Statehouse Museum features a documentary series of videos highlighting the national significance of the Ohio Constitution — from its critical role in the slavery abolition movement to how it set a national model for the funding of public education.

Visitors to the Ohio Statehouse Museum may view the films in the central exhibit area where pages of the historic documents are on display.

The videos are also available online to watch before and after your Capitol visit.
