Extractions: F rom Alpena to Altheimer, Portia to Perryville, New Spadra to New Hope, Eudora to Evening Shade . . . are all children in Arkansas getting the same educational opportunities and funding for instruction that will adequately prepare them for life after high school? Citizens acting on behalf of the Lake View School District in Phillips County said "No!" in 1992 and filed a lawsuit that says the State of Arkansas is not providing a general, suitable, and efficient system of public education that is good enough and fair enough for our children. The courts have agreed and the decision now lies with Arkansas' highest court - the State Supreme Court. Because the Arkansas Constitution says it is the legislature's responsibility to provide a fair and equal education, our lawmakers passed Act 1398, An Act to Create a Blue Ribbon Commission on Public Education , in the 2001 legislative session in hopes of avoiding a very likely possibility that our education system will be declared unconstitutional. The Commission is made up of 25 Arkansas citizens and six legislators who are charged with addressing our serious educational problems and proposing solutions to them.
