Denver court decision in education suit says Colorado is underfunding schools by billions

In a ruling that could have multi-billion dollar consequences for Colorado's budget, a Denver judge ruled the state's school funding system is not "thorough and uniform" as mandated by the state constitution.

The state's school funding system "is not rationally related to the mandate to establish and maintain a thorough and uniform system of free public schools," District Judge Sheila Rappaport said in her 183-page ruling in which she called the system "unconscionable."

My book on how the states got their names...

Sorry if you've seen this before, but I'm pretty sure I've never posted anything about it to this forum on DU.

My book is entitled "U.S. State Names: The Stories of How Our States Were Named". It's 511 pages with a lot of maps and illustrations. It tells the story of each state name--not just the etymology, but the story of how it came to be applied to particular region on the planet.

If you have a history buff on your Christmas list, this makes a great gift (Just sayin'.)

The website is http://www.MountainStormPress.com

Also, I've just recently put individual states' stories up for sale as ebooks on the iTunes store. (Sorry, the whole book isn't available digitally just yet.)

Please forgive me if this post is inappropriate. I will be happy to move it or remove it there is a problem.
