Board of Education to Appeal Lobato Decision

A closed session meeting of the state board of education resulted in the decision to appeal the Lobato vs. the State of Colorado ruling that said the state is not meeting the Colorado Constitution's requirement of a "thorough and uniform" public education system.  The board of education's decision goes along with the two other defendants listed in the case, Governor John Hickenlooper, and education commissioner Robert Hammond.  All three defendants have decided to appeal to the State Supreme Court.  The Decmber 9th ruling declared the state's system to be under-funded.
