MARCH 30, 1983

  • Minority leaders in Minneapolis criticize a school district plan to deny standard diplomas to seniors who fail “benchmark” tests in reading, writing, and mathematics. But they support the tests to gauge students’ academic performance.

MARCH 31, 1993

  • Tennessee’s school aid system is struck down by the state supreme court. Because so little state aid goes toward equalized funding, it rules, “disparities in economic resources among the school districts in the state have resulted in great disparities.”

  • A Louisiana state judge bars the Caddo Parish school system from using a sex education curriculum that teaches students to abstain from sexual intercourse until after marriage on the grounds that it is “medically inaccurate” and contains “religious beliefs.”
