DOVER — The city of Dover is suing New Hampshire over the state's cap on aid to schools.
The city says the limit on state money to schools violates the state's constitution, which says that it must fund an adequate education for each child.
State aid has been capped at 108 percent since 2011, which can be hard on school districts that seen an increase in students.
Mayor Karen Weston says Dover is growing quickly and the cap will cause it to lose nearly $1.5 million in state aid this fiscal year.
Governor Maggie Hassan says she plans to work with the state Department of Justice on a response.
Hassan says education funding is "an ongoing part of budget discussions."k
