Trial Date Set For School Finance Lawsuits

October 22.

That’s the date, according to the Associated Press.

Four lawsuits on behalf of hundreds of school districts have been filed in response to school finance legislation passed by the Texas Legislature last summer.  They allege that Texas’ funding distribution is inadequate and inequitable. Highland Park ISD is not one of the plaintiffs, but has signed on in support of the suit.

State District Judge John Dietz consolidated the cases, and set the temporary trial date today.
