CarolinaCast: 25 years after it started, the Leandro education funding case awaits an N.C. Supreme Court decision

In 1997, the NC Supreme Court delivered a decision in the original Leandro case. The decision said that every North Carolinian has a constitutional right to a sound, basic education. More than 20 years later, the Leandro case was back before the N.C. Supreme Court this fall.

This time, the issue in the case is whether the judicial branch can force the Legislature to fund a plan that would seek to address inequity in public education funding.

In this edition of CarolinaCast, Walter Reinke discusses the case with William Christensen.
