Leandro is a long-running court case in North Carolina, in which the plaintiffs — five NC school districts — argued that students in their districts were not getting access to adequate education because of a lack of resources. Judge Howard Manning agreed, ruling that the state has a constitutional mandate to provide every North Carolina child with a sound, basic education. Twenty-five years later, the parties to the lawsuit are working on a settlement. This video from EdNC goes over the basics in just over one minute.
