State Supreme Court to hear education lawsuit
A two-decades-old lawsuit over education funding is headed back to the state Supreme Court on Tuesday. Justices will be asked to decide whether South Carolina schools provide all students access to a “minimally adequate education,” the constitutional standard they set in their 1999 ruling that sent the case to trial.
That trial resulted in a ruling that gave both sides a partial victory. Both sides appealed the part they lost, and the high court in May ordered a rehearing.
