An entirely new heaven and earth were created to replace the first heaven and earth which fled away at the Great White Throne Judgment Rev.
The District Court held that the Texas system discriminates on the basis of wealth in the manner in which education is provided for its people. Finding that wealth is a "suspect" classification, and that education is a "fundamental" interest, the District Court held that the Texas system could be sustained only if the State could show that it was premised upon some compelling ate interest.
On this issue the court concluded that "[n]ot only are defendants unable to demonstrate compelling state interests. Texas virtually concedes that its historically rooted dual system of financing education could not withstand the strict judicial scrutiny that this Court has found appropriate in reviewing legislative judgments that interfere with fundamental constitutional rights [ Footnote 39 ] writing assertion evidence commentary and restatement that involve suspect classifications.
The State candidly admits that "[n]o one familiar with the Texas system would contend that it has yet achieved perfection.
We must decide, first, whether the Texas system of financing public education operates to the disadvantage of some suspect class or impinges upon a fundamental right explicitly or implicitly protected by the Constitution, thereby requiring strict judicial scrutiny.
If so, the judgment of the District Court should be affirmed. If not, the Texas scheme must still be examined to determine whether it rationally furthers some legitimate, articulated state purpose, and therefore does not constitute an invidious discrimination in violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
II The District Court's opinion does not reflect the novelty and complexity of the constitutional questions posed by appellees' challenge to Texas' system of school financing.
In concluding that strict judicial scrutiny was required, Page U. Finding that the local property tax system discriminated on the basis of wealth, it regarded those precedents as controlling.
It then reasoned, based on decisions of this Court affirming the undeniable importance of education, [ Footnote 47 ] that there is a fundamental right to education, and that, absent some compelling state justification, the Texas system could not stand.
We are unable to agree that this case, which in significant aspects is sui generis, may be so neatly fitted into the conventional mosaic of constitutional analysis under the Equal Protection Clause.
Indeed, for the several reasons that follow, we find neither the suspect classification nor the fundamental interest analysis persuasive. A The wealth discrimination discovered by the District Court in this case, and by several other courts that have recently struck down school financing laws in other States, [ Footnote 48 ] is quite unlike any of the forms of wealth discrimination Page U.
Rather than focusing on the unique features of the alleged discrimination, the courts in these cases have virtually assumed their findings of a suspect classification through a simplistic process of analysis: This approach largely ignores the hard threshold questions, including whether it makes a difference, for purposes of consideration under the Constitution, that the class of disadvantaged "poor" cannot be identified or defined in customary equal protection terms, and whether the relative -- rather than absolute -- nature of the asserted deprivation is of significant consequence.
Before a State's laws and the justifications for the classifications they create are subjected to strict judicial scrutiny, we think these threshold considerations must be analyzed more closely than they were in the court below. The case comes to us with no definitive description of the classifying facts or delineation of the disfavored class.
Examination of the District Court's opinion and of appellees' complaint, briefs, and contentions at oral argument suggests, however, at least three ways in which the discrimination claimed here might be described. The Texas system of school financing might be regarded as discriminating 1 against "poor" persons whose incomes fall below some identifiable level of poverty or who might be characterized as functionally "indigent," [ Footnote 49 ] or Page U.
The precedents of this Court provide the proper starting point. The individuals, or groups of individuals, who constituted the class discriminated against in our prior cases shared two distinguishing characteristics: Illinois, Page U.
The payment requirements in each case were found to occasion de facto discrimination against those who, because of their indigency, were totally unable to pay for transcripts. And the Court in each case emphasized that no constitutional violation would have been shown if the State had provided some "adequate substitute" for a full stenographic transcript.
