Two important court cases decided today.More details and good discussions going on the posts ( ) over at the Seattle Public Schools Community Blog.
1. Court rules that the state is NOT fulfilling its constitutional duty to fully fund education.
2. Court finds that Seattle Public schools choice of high school math textbooks was capricious and arbitrary and directs to Board to reconsider the adoption.
