When the system is rigged to provide quality by Zip Code, when our own State Supreme Court Overturns Sweeping Ruling In CCJEF Education Funding Lawsuit.
" It is not the function of the courts ...to eliminate all of the societal deficiencies that continue to frustrate the state’s educational efforts." ~ Chief Justice Chase T. Rogers, wrote for the majority.
Equity is the target, our governors, our legislators, our courts, and yes we the people have failed to hit that target for over a 100 years, and generations of our Black, Brown, and Special Education children have suffered for our failure to do better by them.
In my humble opinion this failure in the richest state in the nation is a moral failure to do right by all children. The fact that this struggle needs to even go to the courts is a sure sign of an immoral education funding formula.
In a moral society, our poor children should not have to beg for fairness and justice,
In a moral society, Black children should not have to beg for fairness and justice,
In a moral society, Brown children should not have to beg for fairness and justice,
In a moral society, Special Education children should not have to beg for fairness and justice,
When children, their parents, and communities have to beg for equity, than the system is broken.
The goal is equity and justice for all children, it has always been the goal, and anything less is exactly what White Supremacy fight for 24 7 365.
Bishop Selders and Moral Monday CT are willing to call it what is it, and are moving to take that conversation public, and on the road.
