A district judge in Denver is presiding over the state's first educational "adequacy case." At issue is whether the state's schools are being required to meet high academic standards without being given the resources to do so. The case was filed in 2005 by a then-high-school student, who argues that because the state did not provide enough resources, her district did not offer advanced courses, had limited Internet access and lacked textbooks. However, state officials contend that providing more funding for K-12 schools would come at the expense of higher education.
