Sam Zurier en Districts Appeal to Supreme Court in School Funding Lawsuit <p>Woonsocket and Pawtucket are asking the Rhode Island Supreme Court to intervene in their effort to get more funding from the state. The districts filed briefs late last week, arguing they do not receive enough state aid to meet the state’s basic education requirements. The districts claim their students are being denied equal access to an education, in violation of their rights under the state constitution.</p><p></p> Tue, 13 Aug 2013 13:48:45 +0000 Elisabeth Harrison 19979 at
