LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A proposed agreement going before a federal judge could soon end decades of court battles and $1 billion in state funding to three Little Rock area schools.
U.S. District Judge Price Marshall will hear arguments Monday and Tuesday on whether to officially end the dispute rooted in the 1957 Central High School desegregation fight.
Marshall in November tentatively approved the plan calling for payments to end in four years after the state pays an additional nearly $70 million a year to the districts.
