A coalition of students, school districts and education groups sued the state of California on Thursday, seeking to force the governor and Legislature to develop a new system to fund public schools.
The lawsuit asks the court to declare the current school finance system unconstitutional because the state doesn't provide enough money to cover its own educational mandates and programs.
