AUSTIN (June 10, 2014) The League of United Latin American Citizens filed a class-action, federal civil rights lawsuit against Texas Tuesday that alleges that Hispanic English language learners aren't receiving adequate instruction in high schools across the state.
The lawsuit names Texas Education Commissioner Michael Williams as chief defendant.
In the suit LULAC argues Texas is violating the Equal Educational Opportunities Act of 1974, which says no state can deny students educational opportunities by failing to "take appropriate action to overcome language barriers that impede equal participation" in instructional programs.
The suit singles out two San Antonio school districts, but says similar problems persist in high schools statewide.
English language learners "continue to perform abysmally" thanks to "grossly deficient language programs" in many areas, the suit says.
