  • This study situates the recent North Carolina Supreme Court decision, generally known as the Leandro Case, in the context of other states' judicial interventions into education, as well as the broader context of American capitalistic society, in order to project the long-term affects the ruling will produce for North Carolina school systems. Through an analysis of both internal and external characteristics affecting the ruling, it is concluded that the state of North Carolina will be unable to achieve the goal of a sound, basic education for all students mandated in the Leandro Case, which is based on the currently held conception of equity.
