School Finance Litigation across the States: An Update.
Verstegen, D. A., Ed.
This report is an update on eight state-level cases: (1) "School Financier Litigation in Minnesota" (Van D. Mueller), which states students are allowed enhanced access to suburban schools and to Minneapolis magnet schools; (2) "School Finance Litigation across the States--New Hampshire" (Van D. Mueller), which states the court ruled that property tax levied to fund education is unconstitutional; (3) "New Jersey School Finance Litigation in the New Millennium" (Margaret E. Goetz), which states the court defined and implemented "thorough and efficient" education; (4) "Update on New York Education Finance Litigation" (Michael A. Rebell), which states the court ruled the current system of school aid distribution invalid and ordered creation of a new system; (5) "Update on Ohio Education Finance Litigation" (Richard G. Salmon), which states political difficulties continue to confound legislation on Ohio's public school financing system; (6) "Update on West Virginia Education Finance Litigation" (Richard G. Salmon), which states plaintiffs ask the court to appoint a commissioner to ensure the West Virginia State Board of Education fulfills its responsibilities; (7) "Wisconsin's Litigation: 'Vincent v. Voight'" (Richard A. Rossmiller), which states the court upheld the constitutionality of the state's school financing system; and (8) "Litigation in Wyoming: 'Campbell II'" (Deborah A. Verstegen), which states the new funding plan was affirmed in part and reversed in part; the case was remanded for further proceedings. (Each paper contains references.) (RT)
