Connecticut Supreme Court ruling holding that the right to education in Connecticut is so basic and fundamental that any intrusion on the right must be strictly scrutinized. The Court said that public school students are entitled to equal enjoyment of the right to education and a system of school financing that relied on local property tax revenues without regard to disparities in town wealth, and that lacked significant equalizing state support, was unconstitutional. Connecticut Supreme Court also held the creation of a constitutional system for education financing is a job for the legislature and not the courts.
