court to root out what we believe lies at the heart of the continuing
failure of Illinois public schools: the state’s fundamentally flawed and
discriminatory funding system. As children return to school and our
lawsuit resumes its progress through the courts, it is a good time to
look at where we’ve been and where we’re going.
