Latino Groups Sue Texas Public Schools Over English Language Learning, Say Programs Are 'Grossly Deficient'



On Tuesday, Latino advocacy groups filed a lawsuit against Texas claiming that the state's schools do not provide enough resources for English language learners.

The 27-page-long complaint was filed by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund representing the League of United Latin American Citizens, Associated Press reports. The lawsuit claims Texas is not adhering to the Equal Educational Opportunities Act of 1974, which says that a state can't hold a student back by not taking "appropriate action to overcome language barriers that impede equal participation."
