Literacy Lawsuit in California Can Proceed, Court Rules

A California lawsuit asserting that literacy is a fundamental right within the state constitution has been cleared to proceed.

A state Superior Court judge overruled a motion by the state education department, board of education, and superintendent to dismiss the lawsuit. Her decision means that the lawsuit is presumably cleared to go to trial, although the plaintiffs appear to be hoping that the state will settle long before that. If so, it would probably mean putting new funding into literacy programs and instruction in the Golden State.
