Texas will appeal a judge's ruling that the state's school finance system is unconstitutional.
The lawsuit was filed by about two thirds of the state's school districts. The judge scolded the state legislature for failing to pay for an adequate and equal education for all Texas children.
Allen Independent School District Superintendent Dr. Ken Helvey said more money doesn't always mean better education.
"But there comes a point where your adequacy of funding now has met a cap and you can no longer meet, or at least your minimum standards are in jeopardy. Judge [John] Deitz found that clearly violates the constitution," he said.
The case will now go to the Texas Supreme Court, but that may not happen until after the legislative session is over.
