State of California Sued by School Children

Lawyers representing seven California schoolchildren have filed a lawsuit against the state seeking to overturn statutes that govern teacher employment, including seniority-based layoffs.

The lawsuit, sponsored by nonprofit education reform group Students Matter, was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday against the state and Gov. Jerry Brown, as well as state education officials and two school districts: Los Angeles Unified and Alum Rock Union in San Jose.

In an effort to bring about changes in California state law, a new tactic by Students Matter hits Sacramento.
