A judge ruled Monday that the school-funding system used in Texas is unconstitutional, in part, because of rising academic standards that have not accompanied additional funding. Also at issue is that education funding in the state is not equitable among low-income and wealthy districts. The ruling was a victory for more than 600 school districts that sued the state following a $5.4-billion cut from state education funding in 2011.
