The Campaign for Educational Equity releases today the third report in its Education, Equity, and the Law series, "Building a Sustained School Facilities Remedy: Arizona's Innovative Blueprint for Capital Funding" written by Molly A. Hunter, the director of Education Justice at the Education Law Center. "Building a Sustained School Facilities Remedy" analyzes the success of Arizona's statewide process for financing and building school facilities, which is a result of the 1998 Students FIRST Act, an education quality lawsuit that established the Arizona School Facilities Board. The author gives an overview of this litigation and its effects in Arizona, including the progress of the School Facilities Board in funding new building and renovation, and areas where the funding mechanism still falls short.
