The Texas Supreme Court, in Neeley v. West Orange-Grove Consolidated Independent School District, No. 04-1144 (Nov. 22, 2005), held that Texas school districts illegally use property taxes to pay for public education. The court ordered that the state must find a new way to finance schools by June 1 or classrooms will not open for the fall term.
