Melanie Dubis was quoted in The News & Observer, WRAL, EdNC, and other media outlets’ coverage of the North Carolina Supreme Court hearing arguments in the Leandro case. It is a long-running lawsuit that established a constitutional right to a sound basic education for all public school students in North Carolina. Melanie is the lead counsel for the plaintiff school districts.
In her argument before the Supreme Court, Melanie noted that a lower court judge “repeatedly found that the State of North Carolina was continuing to fail to provide the children the opportunity to a sound basic education.”
“Now, the future of the children of North Carolina is in this court’s hands,” Melanie said.
Both the plaintiff school districts and attorneys for the State of North Carolina urged the court to uphold the state’s comprehensive plan to remedy those ongoing violations.
