Trending Education Litigation Issues Webinar
The last few years have seen a substantial uptick in the number of school funding lawsuits filed across the country. Cases are now on the dockets in Tennessee, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York and elsewhere. As states slowly recover from the Great Recession, the relative quiet experienced in this arena is coming to an end.
School funding lawsuits carry serious policy and budget implications for state government and raise complex questions involving education policy, legislative priorities and fiscal realities. Answering such questions requires specialized knowledge, including complicated statistical and expert testimony. Simply put, school funding lawsuits demand a unique approach and thoughtful strategy.
Please join us for a 90-minute webinar on December 10, 2015, as two veterans of such cases, Bobbi Rank, General Counsel for the South Dakota Department of Education, and Dr. Rick Melmer, former South Dakota Secretary of Education and the Director of RVM Consulting, join Stinson Partners John Munich and Jamie Boyer, to discuss both the legal and education aspects of defending a state-wide school funding lawsuit.
