State officials plan to appeal a judge's ruling that New Mexico's funding for schools is inadequate.

Advocacy groups and school districts sued in 2014, accusing the state of failing to meeting constitutional obligations to provide a sufficient education for all students. The case highlighted the plight of English-language learners, Native American youths, and students from low-income families.

The ruling late last month gives the state 60 days to craft a plan and sets an April 15 deadline for ensuring that schools are adequately funded to provide at-risk students a sufficient education.
