AEA Wins Crucial Local School Funding Victory in Alabama Supreme Court
Montgomery, Alabama, May 14, 2021 – The Alabama Education Association (AEA) won another case of statewide importance for Alabama schools today when the Alabama Supreme Court upheld a local online sales tax act. This act benefitted schools within Morgan County by directing online sales tax revenue to them instead of to the Morgan County Commission. Today’s decision is crucial to the future of education funding as brick-and-mortar sales shift while online sales revenue increase exponentially. With this victory, the AEA is hopeful the Alabama Legislature will take notice and modernize Alabama’s antiquated education funding methods.
