PA School Funding Lawsuit Inches forward, though Roadblocks Remain

A lawsuit challenging Pennsylvania’s education funding system inched forward Monday, delivering a incremental victory to the plaintiffs, though potential roadblocks linger.

A Commonwealth Court ruling tossed objections raised by leaders of the Republican-controlled state House and Senate, allowing the case to move forward.

But the court also ordered the parties to present more information on whether the case should be declared moot and what standard of review the judiciary should use if it ultimately reviews the case — meaning there will be at least one more intermediary phase to decide if the case should proceed to a full trial.

That decision could have dramatic implications for Pennsylvania’s public schools.
