"Serrano" and "Robinson": Studies in the Implementation of Fiscal Equity and Effective Education in State Public Law Litigation.
Clune, William H., III; Lindquist, Robert E.
This paper presents a model of implementation for educational finance reform litigation. The author views the implementation process as a series of dilemmas, or tradeoffs, that cluster together across a matrix of continua. The levels of these continua concern the goal, standards, typical majoritarian response, enforceability problem, and political arena of the implementation. Tracing the stories of the school finance cases in California and New Jersey--Serrano and Robinson--the author demonstrates his paradigm as a predictive model for social change and a normative model for judicial involvement.
