Lawsuit against charter schools may be back
As part of Washington Policy Center's ongoing I-1240 Follow-Up Project, we have anticipated an effort by the WEA union to seek a lawsuit to block implementation of the voter-passed charter school measure. Earlier in the year the idea appeared to be dropped. Now it looks like it's back.
