The California State PTA has joined more than 60 minors and nine school districts, including Hemet Unified School District and Riverside Unified School District, in filing a lawsuit against the state of California Thursday.
The lawsuit contends the current education finance system is broken and unconstitutional, according to a news release from California State PTA. The suit also alleges that because of the actions of the states, students are being denied the opportunity to master the educational programs the state requires.
“We must have a school finance system that allows schools to deliver a high-quality education for all children — in good times and in tough times,” said Jo A.S. Loss, president of California State PTA.
Jeannie Hardy, president of the Temecula Valley Council of PTAs, said she supports the fact that the California State PTA has gotten involved, and that she hopes this action gets the attention of lawmakers in Sacramento.
” The state is asking schools to do more and more with less and less.
