What’s expected to be a several-weeks-long school finance trial began last week in Missouri. Nearly half the state’s school districts, represented by the umbrella group Committee for Education Equality, filed a lawsuit in Cole County Circuit Court in January 2004. The lawsuit argues that Missouri school districts aren’t receiving “sufficient” money to provide a “proper and adequate” education as required by the state constitution. Several school superintendents and national school finance experts are expected to testify at the trial in Cole County.
