Will Robin Hood Work for Texas Schools?

Monday, a judge heard opening statements in the case that will ultimately determine the fate of the so called "Robin Hood Plan."

School districts argue they are under-funded and are forced to charge a maximum property tax rate. The state disagrees, saying it exceeds the minimum funding requirements for schools. "We believe all the evidence presented to the judge, again is going to be sufficient to the judge, the system is constitutional," said Gregg Abbott, Texas Attorney General.

The trial is expected to last several weeks.
