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