The Constitutionality of the Illinois Public School Finance System: "The Committee for Educational Rights v. Edgar."
Ward, James Gordon
Journal of Education Finance, v12 n1 p1-21 Sum 1997
In October 1996, the Illinois Supreme Court affirmed lower court decisions and dismissed a lawsuit claiming that the state's public school funding system violated the Illinois constitution. This decision ended a six-year battle to reform the state's school funding system. The courts found no constitutional issues in the case because education has never been considered a fundamental right in Illinois. (47 references) (MLH)
