Abbott versus Burke: Supreme Court Oral Argument

By Michael Aron

During the oral argument before the Supreme Court David Sciarra, representing Abbott school district students, reminded the justices that they upheld a new school funding formula in April 2009 and ordered it fully funded for three years.  In this year’s budget, the governor and legislature cut aid to all schools by 820 million dollars.  The justices challenged Sciarra’s insistence that the state spend on schools irrespective of its fiscal condition.
