Governor requests mediation of school funding case-now?

 We’re all for a solution that would get funding into our schools more quickly, but the Governor is requesting a stay of the lower court’s order, and there’s something distasteful about requesting mediation at this point. The State lost the Montoy case in 2005 and was ordered to adequately fund schools. They raised funding for 1 year and then started cutting again through last year when the economy was improving. Now they’ve lost again, and the Supreme Court won’t hear new evidence, so the likelihood of the plaintifs’ success seems pretty high, so now they want a compromise. Compromise isn’t a bad thing but in this case “compromise” looks a lot like trying to get out of what you should have been doing since 2005.  See more here:
