Mathew and Stephanie McCleary et al., v. State of Washington (short form: McCleary v. Washington), commonly known as the McCleary Decision, was a lawsuit against the State of Washington alleging that the state, in the body of the state legislature, had failed to meet the state constitutional duty (in Article IX, Section 1) "to make ample provision for the education of all children residing within its borders." The Washington Supreme Court affirmed 7-0, with some justices dissenting in part on the question of continued judicial oversight. Since the Supreme Court's finding, the Court has continued to take part in assessing the state's compliance with its order. As of 2016, the court has found the state to not be in compliance. The court has fined the state of Washington $100,000 per day since August 2015 as penalty for continued non-compliance.
