School Funding And Fairness Debated

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.
