A HUGE win for California’s children (June 10, 2014)


In January I wrote about the ground breaking civil rights lawsuit, Vergara VS. California, that challenged several statutes as violating students’ constitutional rights to an equal quality education. http://www.billbloomfield.com/a-crucial-civil-rights-case-for-californias-children-jan-22-2014

This morning, the judge ruled in favor of the children on all counts!

What this means is simple: Our students not only deserve a quality education, but it is their constitutional right. California will no longer accept mediocrity or unfair disparity that punishes some students simply due to their circumstances or zip code.

The ruling is posted at: http://studentsmatter.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/Tenative-Decision.pdf

I hope you agree.
