Howard Fleeter has served as a research consultant to the Ohio Education Policy Institute (OEPI), since its inception. OEPI is a non-profit 501-3C organization whose mission is to provide non-partisan data and analysis on issues relating to education and tax policy in Ohio.
OEPI was originally formed in 1997 as the Education Tax Policy institute (ETPI) by a consortium of Ohio school districts and local government groups in order to provide research and analysis relating to the impact of electricity deregulation on local government finances. It was renamed as the Ohio Education Policy Institute in 2015.
Over the 20+ years of its existence OEPI has engaged in a wide range of research analyzing school funding and state and local tax policy in Ohio.
