The Supreme court ruled that Washington is violating its own constitution and failing to provide adequately for basic education.
Last week’s ruling is seen as vindication for superintendents across the state who have been railing against further cuts.
State Superintendent, Randy Dorn, says the Supreme Court ruling is final and will likely go a long way in protecting basic education.
Dorn admits that even with this recent ruling, it’s too early to celebrate.
