Districts seek settlement

Both sides in a lawsuit over state funding for education are seeking to avoid a trial. The 21 schools districts in the lawsuit are seeking a summary judgment, while the state is seeking a dismissal of the case. The school districts, which include Greenville and Jackson, say the state has not lived up to the funding requirements set by the Mississippi Adequate Education Program passed in 2005, and are seeking millions in back payments and a guarantee of future funding. A hearing is planned in a Hinds County Chancery Courtroom on January 14th.
