The U.S. Supreme Court Will Take Up Flores v. Arizona

| 1 Comment

Kenneth W. Starr may soon be back in the national limelight because the U.S. Supreme Court has decided it will review the long-running federal case, Flores v. Arizona. Mr. Starr, the former Independent Counsel in the Whitewater scandal, is a lawyer defending Arizona legislators in that case. See my blog post, "Kenneth Starr Steps into the World of ELLs."

My colleague Mark Walsh writes in a story published today at edweek.org about the U.S. Supreme's Court decision to hear the case, which involves whether the education of English-language learners in Arizona is being adequately funded by the state. (Update: See the School Law Blog for links to court papers.) I last wrote for Education Week about Flores v. Arizona in March.

The nation's highest court is likely to hear arguments on the case in April.

Update: The Arizona Republic reported Jan. 10 on the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to hear the case.

Interesting. I wonder what they'll decide.
