In its landmark decision, the New York State Court of Appeals, New York StateÍs highest court, gives CFE the green light to pursue a constitutional challenge to the New YorkÍs education finance system on the grounds that it denies thousands of students the opportunity to a ñsound basic education. The State Supreme Court rules in favor of CFE, declaring the stateÍs school funding system unconstitutional. In his decision, Justice Leland DeGrasse orders the State to reform the school funding system to make it predictable, transparent, and aligned to student need.
