Lake View is over--UPDATE

Posted By on Thu, May 31, 2007 at 10:45 AM

Rep. Steve Harrelson breaks the news on his blog. Gov. Mike Beebe has an 11 a.m. news conference.

Here's Justice Robert Brown's opinion for a unanimous court declaring the Arkansas public schools constitutional. Oh frabjous day. Now the hard work begins -- keeping them constitutional year after year. And achieving praiseworthy results for all kids.

UPDATE: Beebe passed out thank-yous to those on both sides of the case, including Rogers attorney David Matthews, who Beebe said deserved credit for keeping the issues of Lake View in front of the legislature and the public.

And, he said, "Anybody that thinks we're through has missed the point." The legislature and executive branch will at the least need to do biannual reviews of what's "adequate," and what parts of the education system are working and not working.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
