LITTLE ROCK -- Attorney General Dustin McDaniel issued the following statement today in response to Judge Brian Miller's decision in the Pulaski County school desegregation case:

"This is a significant milestone in this long-running case, with critical implications for the students in Pulaski County and the people of Arkansas. I continue to be focused on the educational needs of the children in these districts, as well as the financial implications of this case on the taxpayers of the State as a whole.

"The Court has recognized that we must change a broken system in order to better serve our children. I am committed to working with the districts, the Governor, and the Department of Education to ensure the fiscal stability of these districts and a quality education for their students."
