Attorneys ask judge to rule on Arizona schools case

TUCSON, Ariz. — A federal judge in Tucson is being asked to finally rule
in a case on the adequacy of Arizona’s public school programs for
students learning the English language.

The filing this week by the Arizona Center for Law in the Public Interest said
the state won’t consider making further changes to the programs until the judge

U.S. District Judge Raner C. Collins has had the case under advisement since April
2011. That was after the last filing following a trial that ended in January

A previous judge ruled that the programs were inadequate, but the U.S. Supreme
Court ruled in June 2010 that Arizona was entitled to a fresh review.

The case was originally filed in 1992 on behalf of children and parents in the
Nogales school district.
