Connecticut court decision on school equity

You may have seen or heard the widely-reported news of a Connecticut court decision about Connecticut school funding.Here’s a chunk of that news: https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/judge-connecticut-education-funding-system-unconstitutional/2016/09/07/cfcb2b18-7523-11e6-9781-49e591781754_story.html
You probably don’t need to go to law school to know that court decisions make (ok conservatives--interpret) law and that this Connecticut decision makes/interprets law only for Connecticut. Yeah but the decision takes a pretty close look at a state system, so maybe what was seen can help clarify our Maryland/Montgomery County Public Schools situation.
I’ve read just a bit of the decision; it seems worth our read: http://www.jud.ct.gov/external/supapp/Cases/AROcr/CR295/295CR163.pdf
