Federal lawsuit seeks to establish a constitutional right to education
from The Washington Post
An advocacy group best known for using the courts to challenge California’s teacher tenure laws has now taken its legal strategy to Connecticut, where it has sued state officials over "anti-opportunity" laws that restrict the growth of magnet and charter schools and that limit inner-city students' ability to transfer to more affluent suburban school districts. The California-based group Students Matter argues that those limitations trap thousands of poor and minority children in terrible schools that are failing according to Connecticut’s own rating system, violating what should be considered a right to education under the U.S. Constitution.
