Latino Advocacy Groups Sue over Texas ELL Programs

Latino Advocacy Groups in Texas have filed a lawsuit against the state, claiming school resources for English language learners (ELL) are grossly inadequate.

On Tuesday a 27 page- long complaint was filed by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) representing the League of United Latin American Citizens, claiming the state of Texas is failing to adhere to the Equal Educational Opportunities Act of 1974.
