CCJEF v. Rell

The Connecticut Supreme Court recently ruled that a lower court erred in dismissing claims filed in 2005 by the Connecticut Coalition for Justice in Education Funding (“CCJEF”). CCJEF filed suit on behalf of students and families, contending that the state’s failure to properly fund public schools inadequately prepares students for higher education and employment opportunities. Relying on the state Constitution, which provides that “there shall always be free and public elementary and secondary schools in the state,” plaintiffs alleged that the state denied students “suitable educational opportunities.”
