A judge ruled that Colorado severely underfunded public school and did not provide adequate resources for poor, minority and disabled students.
Judge Sheila Rappaport ruled that Colorado was in violation of the state’s constitutional pledge to provide a “thorough and uniform” education system.
The Huffington Post reports:
“There is not one school district that is sufficiently funded,” Rappaport writes in the report. “This is an obvious hallmark of an irrational system.”
Rappaport’s ruling concludes a five-week trial in one of the most provocative education lawsuits in Colorado’s history. Lobato v. State of Colorado was filed in 2005, arguing that the state’s education system is unconstitutional, by failing to comply with a clause in the state constitution that calls for a “thorough and uniform system of free public schools throughout the state.”
“The finance system must be revised to assure that funding is rationally related to the actual costs of providing a thorough and uniform system of public education,” Rappaport writes. “It is also apparent that increased funding will be required.”
