    Biography: Robert Jackson's political career began with his 1986 election to the Community School Board 6. He and this board gained notoriety in 1991 when they founded the Campaign for Fiscal Equality, which successfully sued the state of New York over what they deemed was an unconstitutional school funding method. In 2001 he was elected to the City Council, representing parts of Morningside Heights, Hamilton Heights, West Harlem, Washington Heights and Inwood.
