In 1968, 400 Edgewood High School students protested against administration, demanding that they be provided with better supplies and more qualified teachers. Their parents set off a legal battle with the school district to get their kids a better education. In 1984, the current school finance system was declared unconstitutional and a new "Robin Hood" system was implemented. The new system required 134 of the richer school districts to share their funding with some of the poorer ones. This investigation looks at the effectiveness of this equity funding system, as well as other problems the district faces.
