Around the country, educational advocates are taking the fight for decent schools to court. Such suits can make a difference, said Michael Rebell, co-founder of the Campaign for Fiscal Equity. In 2006, this non-profit organization won the landmark CFE v. New York lawsuit, resulting in a state commitment to spend billions more on education statewide. The state has not fully fulfilled its CFE commitment and Rebell has returned to court with another lawsuit. “We are trying to keep the pressure on,” he said.
