Real Story — Revamping state education funding

HARTFORD -- Quinnipiac Law Professor William Dunlap - Analyzes the recent decision by a Superior Court judge, ordering the state to revamp the system of funding public education, and the way it's delivered.   In addition, the decision to appeal the ruling at the State Supreme Court.

Attorney General George Jepsen announced the appeal to the state Supreme Court on Thursday. He said the legislative and executive branches — not a judge — determine state education policy.

Superior Court Judge Thomas Moukawsher ruled last week in an 11-year-old lawsuit that the state must submit plans to overhaul its education system and change its school funding formula within 180 days.
