Robin Hood sent back to court

An advocate for property-wealthy school districts said Thursday the Texas Supreme Court’s decision to push the Robin Hood school funding case back to trial court sends a signal that elected leaders should find a solution to school finance or the courts will do it for them.

“The legislature will probably act on school finance before the lawsuit will be retried, but it still sends a great message that if you don’t fix it this time, be aware that the Supreme Court has already ruled this way and would probably be likely to rule this way again,” said Brad Shields of the Texas Smokestack School Coalition.
