A lawsuit has been filed challenging the way in which the state distributes funding to public schools. Alex Bartlett is the Attorney for the Committee for Educational Equality, which is looking for solutions to the current funding problems. He says the list of school districts involved in the lawsuit is growing – now up to 243. The Committee isn’t saying specifically how the funding problem should be solved, other than to say additional revenues are needed. The Committee insists it’s up to the Legislature to address the needs of public education and to take whatever action might be needed. Governor Bob Holden has issued a statement criticizing the Legislature for what he says is a failure to satisfy its constitutional duties to adequately fund education. He says he’s confident the court will require the Legislature to come up with the necessary funding.
