VT-Whitingham Education Funding Case to Continue

Whitingham education funding case to continue

NEWFANE — A court case presented by a student and a taxpayer alleging that Vermont’s educational funding model is unconstitutional will continue despite the state’s attempts to dismiss all claims.
“These claims involved allegations that the state has infringed on important rights guaranteed under the Vermont Constitution,” Judge Robert Gerety wrote in a decision and order denying the state’s motion for judgment on the pleadings. “A just result requires developing a full factual record, based on evidence, not mere allegations, before assessing whether the statutes involved are violative of the Vermont Constitution. Accordingly, the court has determined that the parties shall be afforded a reasonable period of time to complete reasonable discovery targeted at the specific claims of the parties.”
