How low can the school budget be before it is unconstitutional? We may find out, says Nevada Senate Education Committee Chairman Mo Denis. Other states have been sued by parents and teachers for not providing sufficient funding for education or not distributing the funds fairly to all the state's students. With more budget cuts on the horizon, Nevada may face such a lawsuit. But there are limits to what court's can do to force states to spend money and we see how that could shape the issue.
Given the fact that teachers in Nevada still must buy school supplies with their own salaries which are far below the national average, doesn't the phrase, "fund education adequately" really mean fund it as little as possible? Jim in Henderson –Dec 2, 2010 09:16:21 AM
