New funds for NYC schools?

New York State’s highest court ruled today that New York City has failed to provide “sound basic education” to a million New York City school children. The ruling should mean more money for the cash-strapped city schools.
“Tens of thousands of students are placed in overcrowded classrooms, taught by unqualified teachers and provided with inadequate facilities and equipment,” Chief Judge Judith Kaye wrote for the court. “The number of children in these straits is large enough to represent a systemic failure.”
