Michael Rebell's 2017 Supplement Updates
His Seminal Book, Courts and Kids
Michael Rebell, Teachers College professor of law and educational practice and executive director of Campaign for Educational Equity, has published a new supplement updating his 2009 book, Courts and Kids: Pursuing Educational Equity through the State Courts (Chicago: University of Chicago Press). The 2017 supplement examines the 28 school-funding-adequacy decisions issued by state courts between 2009 and June 30, 2017.
Rebell found that, in recent years, in new cases, the courts have been somewhat less likely to rule in favor of the plaintiffs. Specifically, plaintiffs have prevailed in 47% of the cases decided in the past eight years, compared with winning 67% of the cases between 1989 and 2009. However, courts have consistently enforced compliance with constitutional requirements established in previous cases. So far, 10 court decisions have challenged post-recession reductions in state funding as violating students' educational rights established in previous court rulings, and plaintiffs have prevailed in 9 out of 10 of these decisions.
