Description/Abstract: The Utica school district is seeking to lead the way in Upstate New York in the fight for a fair school-funding formula. The school board voted unanimously last week to sue the state for additional money, saying children in Utica are being denied the "sound, basic education" guaranteed in the state constitution.
