A lawsuit charging the state with spending too little on education likely will go to trial after a judge rejected the state’s request to dismiss the case.
In a ruling released Tuesday, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Long denied the state’s motion to dismiss the suit. The state argued the 50 school districts that filed the lawsuit couldn’t prove that spending more on education would increase student achievement.
This could cost us serious money. Heads up to the legislature: the odds of winning without a series of legislative maneuvers is diminishing. See e.g. Texas.
