Horne v. Flores
No. 08-289

Title:

    Thomas C. Horne, Superintendent, Arizona Public Instruction v. Miriam Flores, et al.

Subject:

    Education Law, Statutory Interpretation

Question:

    1. By interpreting the phrase "appropriate action" under Section 1703(f) of the Equal
    Education Opportunity Act as a requirement that the State of Arizona provide for a
    minimum amount of funding specifically allocated for English Language Learner
    programs statewide, did the Ninth Circuit violate the doctrine prohibiting federal
    courts from usurping the discretionary power of state governments to determine
    how to appropriately manage and fund their public education systems?

    2. Should the phrase "appropriate action" as used in Section 1703(f) of the Equal
    Education Opportunity Act be interpreted consistently with the No Child Left Behind
    Act of 2001, where both Acts have the same purpose with respect to English
    Language Learners and the NCLB provides specific standards for the
    implementation of adequate English Language Learner programs, but the EEOA
    does not?
