Hawaii

Hawai’i is one of only six states where no court case challenging the state’s education finance system has yet been decided and one of only five in which school funding cases have not been filed.

Other states with no such litigation to date are Delaware, Mississippi, Nevada, and Utah. Iowa, with a case that was settled in 2004, has not had a court decision.

Hawai’i is the only state with full state financing of public education. There is only one school district in Hawai’i.

The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) Report, “Public School Finance Systems in the United States and Canada,” describes the Hawai’i school funding system
