This paper examines the positive effects of state court educational "adequacy" cases on increasing school funding, especially in school districts with high enrollments of poor and minority students. It also explores other ramifications of adequacy suits that raise questions as to whether such suits are the positive force in American education portrayed by their supporters, as well as much of the media.
