But Alex Bartlett, chief attorney for half of Missouri public schools, thinks that the fight will continue to change how school funding is distributed.

Description: "If it was up to me, I would appeal. Given an odds situation, I'd say there's about a 99 percent certainty there would be an appeal."

The committee is waiting on the final judgement of the case, which must be filed before they appeal the ruling.
