Several New Jersey civil rights and advocacy organizations have sued to stop the state from using exams called PARCC as a graduation requirement, arguing it will prevent disadvantaged students and students who boycott the test from graduating.
The Latino Action Network, the Latino Coalition of New Jersey, the Paterson Education Fund and the Education Law Center filed the lawsuit in the Appellate Division of the New Jersey Superior Court on Friday. The Education Law Center and American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey are representing the groups.
