Description/Abstract: Gov. George Pataki plunged into the problems of New York City's schools yesterday with an announcement that he would appeal a landmark judicial ruling that called for drastic increases in education aid to the city. That is a serious mistake that will only slow efforts to rectify the glaring deficiencies that led to Justice Leland DeGrasse's historic ruling that the state has failed to guarantee a sound, basic education to city schoolchildren as required by the State Constitution.
