California school districts were granted extraordinary flexibility in implementing a historic overhaul of public education finance to provide more help to “high-needs” poor and English-learner students.
Last spring, the ACLU and Public Advocates, another civil rights organization, sent letters to every school district, county school superintendent and many other school officials outlining the findings.
The ACLU and Public Advocates are already suing Los Angeles Unified, the state’s largest district, for such diversions and are clearly ready to use the courts to enforce Brown’s law if he won’t do it.
