MN Supreme Court Hears Education “Adequacy” Case

On Tuesday, the MN Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Cruz-Guzman vs State of Minnesota. The Plaintiffs in this case  claim that state action (open enrollment, charter schools, etc.) and inaction have led to segregated schools in Minneapolis and St. Paul. The argument before the Court was whether the issue of what is an “adequate education” is an issue for the courts, or whether what an “adequate education” is should be an issue for the legislature and the people.  The Plaintiffs believe courts should decide what is an “adequate education”, while the State believes it should be decided by the Legislature and the people.
