Bezdicheck v. State, No. South Dakota Circuit Court, Case No. CIV 91-209 (unpublished decision 1995).
The South Dakota Circuit Court upheld the state’s system of school finance against a constitutional challenge based on disparities in funding levels among local districts, ruling that while the state constitution requires districts to provide all students with an adequate education, it does not require equal levels of per-pupil spending.
