Mixed Results

No Court Decision

The judicial decisions shown on this map are decisions of the state’s highest court (or a non-appealed lower-court decision) that state whether or not elementary and high school students in the particular state have a legally enforceable right, under the state’s constitution, to “equity” or “adequacy” in school funding. The map does not include follow-up cases or compliance decisions, unless they reverse an initial liability ruling. States are listed as having “mixed results” if the courts have issued multiple decisions regarding these constitutional rights (for example, an “equity” decision favoring the plaintiffs and an “adequacy decision” favoring the defendants).
