Summary Education Week reports on how "urban and rural communities across the country have gone to court in search of more help from their states in constructing and upgrading schools." The story looks at how Alaska's villages and New Jersey's cities have fared in their struggles for financial aid for education. The comparison is between Golovin, Alaska, and Newark, New Jersey. "They represent two sides of the same coin ... yet they have this in common: Compared with the facilities of other school districts in their own states, the schools in Golovin and Newark are at a significant disadvantage," the publication reports.
