King County judge to rule on school money lawsuit

A King County Superior Court judge says he will announce his decision in a statewide school funding lawsuit on Thursday.

KENT, Wash. —

A King County Superior Court judge says he will announce his decision in a statewide school funding lawsuit on Thursday.

The judge's task is to decide whether the state of Washington is adequately paying for public education.

For nearly two months last fall, Judge John Erlick heard testimony from state officials as well as school officials, parents, teachers and community leaders. The coalition that brought the lawsuit wants the judge to order the state to pay the full cost of basic education for kids in kindergarten through 12th grade. The state says it is already doing so.

The case is in many ways a continuation of a lawsuit decided by the state Supreme Court 30 years ago. This case could eventually end up in that court as well.
