SEATTLE, Wash. - Washington State's Attorney General says his job is to follow the will of the voters when it comes to the charter school law.
And that's what he plans to do in response to a legal challenge to that voter-approved charter schools law. A coalition of educators and community groups filed a "legal demand" on Wednesday, questioning the constitutionality of Washington's new charter schools law. The group is asking Attorney General Bob Ferguson to investigate seven constitutional issues. The coalition is led by the Washington Education Association, the League of Women Voters and El Centro del la Raza.
The coalition says if the attorney general doesn't take action, they will file a lawsuit in state courts.
