Should Florida’s courts decide how much money the state should spend on schools?
Lawyers made arguments on Wednesday at Florida’s First District Court of Appeals in Tallahassee in the case of Citizens for Strong Schools v. Florida State Board of Education. At issue was whether the courts should be involved in school funding decisions at all. The plaintiff argued that the state’s schools are so underfunded that they violate the constitutional amendment approved in 1998 requiring the state to provide a high quality education. The state responded that the courts have no business making decisions on the appropriation of public funds.
