A school funding lawsuit against the state got its first hearing at the Cheshire County Superior Court on Friday morning. The two plaintiffs, the Contoocook Valley and Winchester School Districts, argue that the state is not fulfilling its constitutional obligation to fund an adequate education for all New Hampshire students.
In a hearing on the plaintiff’s motions for preliminary injunctive relief, attorney Michael Tierney argued that the state should send a total of $21 million in aid to the districts by Monday, April 1.
