The Massachusetts Education Justice Alliance is calling for changes to the state's school funding mechanism.
Advocates say a House vote yesterday to move a school funding bill forward leaves thousands of English language learners and low income students behind.
The Alliance says House and Senate negotiators must agree to reinsert English language learner and low-income recommendations from the Foundation Budget Review Commission.
The Alliance says the Legislature must step up and commit itself to racial and economic justice.
Meantime, officials in Worcester seem ready to sue the state over educational funding levels in the state. They are looking for a lawyer to represent them and take the case.
There is no word as to whether Springfield officials would join the suit.
