Trial challenging state's school finance formula begins in Austin

From The Houston Chronicle: Lawyers representing hundreds of Texas school districts contend that the state's school funding system is "hopelessly broken," but an attorney for the state says the situation isn't as dire as the districts portray. More than 600 school districts are suing the state, and a trial of the case has begun in Austin. The districts argue that Texas lawmakers are not providing enough money or disbursing it fairly to provide an adequate education for 5 million children attending public schools in the state.
