CCJEF Lawsuit Update: A Right to Quality Education
Connecticut’s Supreme Court issued a ruling in early 2010 in favor of the plaintiffs in CCEJF v. Rell, declaring that Connecticut schoolchildren are entitled to an education that prepares them to be participants in society, pursue higher education and be gainfully employed. The Connecticut Coalition for Justice in Education Funding (CCEJF) filed the suit in 2005, arguing that the state’s system of funding education is broken and unfair.
