Facts: Mexican-American parents whose kids attend school in Edgewood brought class action on behalf of minorities who live in school districts w/low property tax base. Disparity b/w amount of $ spent in San Antonio compared to Edgewood School Districts (least and most affluent districts in San Antonio) ($356/kid v. $594/kid)
PP: DC held that dual system of public school financing violated EP clause. Found wealth to be a “suspect” class.
Holding: SC overruled, said there is no evidence that the difference b/w per pupil $ is directly related to the quality of education. People do not have a fundamental right to an education. Surprising considering Brown.
