One state (IIRC New Hampshire) passed a law stating that all school funding came from a common pool to be doled out by that state. Local school districts were not allowed to do anything. Parents were fined for mowing and lining athletic fields. The quest for equality got to the point that an equipment shed that was used by both boys and girls but more by boys was torn down.

Cleverly, we finance schools through real estate taxes, which means the well to do get better schools.
The rich send their kids to private school and after about 6th grade to boarding schools.
In the courts you get as much justice as you can pay for.
