Texas Teenagers File Brief In State Supreme Court Concerning Education Funding Case.

The Washington Post (9/14, Strauss) reports two Texas teenagers, recent high school graduate Zaakir Tameez and senior Amy Fan, wrote and filed a brief with the Texas Supreme Court sharing their perspective on a case about school funding that is currently pending before the court. The brief “explores the ways that many schools for students who live in poverty are inadequately funded and details the consequences.” The lawsuit was filed in 2011 after the state cut $5.5 billion in education funding, which has not been completely restored. A lower court has already held that the state provides inadequate funding and needs to create a new funding system.
