A judge in Washington, D.C., ruled Thursday that the public is not entitled to see the district’s education spending plan for the next fiscal year until the mayor has submitted it to the city council as part of the city budget.

Before Fenty took control of the school system last spring, parents and local citizens had access to school spending proposals and could suggest potential changes before the entire city budget was submitted for consideration.

The parents said they planned to appeal the ruling.
