R.I. wants to quash lawsuit on funding

WOONSOCKET — The legal move by Woonsocket and Pawtucket to overturn the state's school funding formula may be headed for an early court showdown.
Gov. Chafee’s administration recently filed a motion in Superior Court seeking to have the Woonsocket and Pawtucket suit dismissed. Stephen Robinson, the education law attorney representing the communities, in turn responded with a countering petition.
