State Sued For Not Funding Education Properly

A lawsuit is being filed that accuses the state of under funding public education in certain communities.

Plaintiffs in the suit include parents and children from several communities.

They are Chelsea, Chicopee, Fall River, Haverhill, Lowell, Orange and Springfield.

The lawsuit alleges the inadequate school funding is a violation of their constitutional rights.

It alleges that officials are ignoring the constitutional mandate to fund quality education for all students.

The Governor has not commented.

It is unclear whether he has seen the suit or not.
