Lawyers sue California because too many children can’t read

December 6, 2017

A group of prominent lawyers representing teachers and students from poor performing schools sued California on Tuesday, arguing that the state has done nothing about a high number of schoolchildren who do not know how to read.

The advocacy law firm, Public Counsel, filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court to demand the California Department of Education address its “literacy crisis.” The state has not followed suggestions from its own report on the problem five years ago, the lawsuit said.

“When it comes to literacy and the delivery of basic education, California is dragging down the nation,” said Public Counsel lawyer Mark Rosenbaum, who sued along with the law firm Morrison & Foerster.

Department of Education spokesman Bill Ainsworth said officials could not comment because the state had not yet been served with the lawsuit.

    The CA school system has been a lost cause for a long time now, along with public education in general. CA keeps pouring money into its failed system whining and pleading to get people to pass the funding as “it’s for the children.” Yet all the money ends up in the pockets of the greedy teachers and unions to pay salaries, pensions, and benefits that are undeserved. The whole of CA gummint is massively corrupt.

    That is what the Demo-Commies want, complete ignorance, people who will not question their rhetoric propaganda about how good Socialism & Communism are.

    Of course they do not know how to read if they cannot speak English. Most probably speak another language at home and are not given the opportunity to learn English. I know from experience because my parents spoken broken English but the always encouraged my sister and I to speak to each other in English so they could pick up some of the language. We learned to speak both English and Spanish well (including reading/writing in Spanish). My sister has a Masters Degree and I served in the USMC for over 25 years and loved it .
