Litigation Was Filed in May by Cal State PTA, ACSA, Others

CTA to Intervene in Adequacy Lawsuit

July 29, 2010

Within the next few days the California Teachers Association (CTA) will file a motion to intervene in the Adequate School Funding lawsuit filed by the California State PTA, the California School Boards Association and the Association of California School Administrators.

The groups have welcomed CTA into the action. As interveners, CTA will be able to advance legal arguments at every stage of the proceeding and would be guaranteed a seat at the negotiating table during any settlement talks.  The other groups filed the lawsuit in May, requesting that the state be required to establish a school finance system that provides all students an equal opportunity to meet the academic goals set by the state.  Meanwhile a second adequacy lawsuit was filed this month by a separate coalition of community organizations.
