Utah

Utah 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, Hawaii, Mississippi, and Nevada. Iowa, with a case that was settled in 2004, has not had a court decision.

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