Two constitutional issues continued to dominate litigation related to school finance during 1977. Questions concerning the spending of public funds for the benefit of students attending private schools (for example, Wolman v. Walter) continued to arise in both state and federal courts. Also, cases involving the constitutionality of state school finance programs were decided in the state courts. For example, Connecticut joined the growing list of states in which an existing state support program was found unconstitutional. Other cases covered in this chapter include issues involving school taxation and spending. (Author/LD)
