Michael A. Rebell

Michael A. Rebell is the attorney who led the Campaign for Fiscal Equity (CFE) and litigated the Campaign for Fiscal Equity v. State of New York case. He successfully argued that the state's school finance system under-funded the New York City public schools and had denied NYC students their constitutional right. An internationally known education law scholar and expert on school-finance and school-funding litigation, Rebell is also a professor at Teachers College, Columbia University, and executive director of the Campaign for Educational Equity (CEE). As part of Teachers College, CEE supports the NYSER litigation, but is not a party to the lawsuit. Mr. Rebell’s work on this case is pro bono; he receives no fees or compensation.
