Court decides state has met its education funding requirements

The state Supreme Court last week put an official end to years of legislative efforts to fully fund state public schools. The court unanimously ruled that the Legislature is no longer in contempt of court and ended its oversight of the so-called McCleary case.

In 2012, the court ruled that the Legislature was not meeting its duty under the state Constitution to fully fund schools. The original case was filed in 2007.

There were several reports by media and think tanks regarding the court’s final ruling on an issue that has dominated the Legislature for the past decade.
