Gets day in court in Pa. fair school funding lawsuit

In Pottstown Mercury:

The lawsuit alleges the Pennsylvania General Assembly has violated the state’s constitution by failing to provide fair and adequate funding for public education. Pennsylvania is currently ranked 44th in the nation in school funding, providing just 38 percent of the budgets of local schools. The remaining two-thirds falls to property owners in local districts. Thus, local wealth determines school spending levels.
