Group Sues New Jersey to Desegregate Schools

by Christian Hetrick, The Observer

A coalition of civil rights and other groups sued the state of New Jersey on Thursday in a bid to desegregate the state’s schools, asking the court to strike down laws that largely require students to attend schools where they live.

Filed on the 64th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision, the lawsuit claims the state’s segregated school system violates students’ rights under the New Jersey Constitution and asks the court to force the legislature and Department of Education to remedy the issue.
