Larry was a key player in the early days of the Abbott v. Burke litigation, and discusses the historic Abbott II decision in 1990,in which the New Jersey Supreme Court held that children in our poorest, largely urban school districts were constitutionally entitled to an education comparable to that provided to children from our most affluent school districts.
