Judge says he can order NC to increase school funding. GOP calls him ‘unhinged.’

A North Carolina judge is giving state lawmakers three more weeks to put billions of dollars of new funding into public schools before he potentially orders them to do so. State Superior Court Judge David Lee said Monday that he can compel the General Assembly to fund a plan that calls for $1.7 billion in new school funding over the next two years. The goal of the new money would be to try to provide students with their state constitutional guarantee to a sound basic education.
