PLF Welcomes Supreme Court's Ruling in AZ Schools Case (Horne v. Flores)
Today, in Horne v. Flores, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling on a challenge to intensive federal court supervision of Arizona public school policies and programs for English learning students.
By a 5-4 vote, the court reversed a Ninth Circuit ruling that found local school policies inadequate, and sent the case back to the district court for a revised look at whether the schools in Nogales provide equal opportunity to English language learners.
Pacific Legal Foundation submitted an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme court, in support of Arizona school officials and in opposition to the Ninth Circuit’s ruling. PLF Attorney Steven Geoffrey Gieseler issued this statement today:
