The Connecticut Supreme Court will hear oral arguments today in an appeal on a 12-year-old lawsuit about how education is funded in the state.
A non-profit organization, the Connecticut Coalition For Justice In Education Funding, filed a lawsuit in 2005 that argues wealthy towns get more money for education at the expense of the poorer districts.
A Superior Court judge sided last September with the coalition and said he wants a rational funding plan, high school graduation standards, a definition of elementary education, teacher evaluation standards, teacher pay standards and reforms to special education.
The attorney general, however, appealed the decision and the state Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case.
