TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A federal judge in Tucson is
being asked to finally rule in a long-lingering case on the adequacy of
Arizona's public school programs for students learning the English
The filing this week by the Arizona Center for Law
in the Public Interest says the state won't consider making further
changes to the programs until the judge rules.
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 2011.
A previous judge ruled that the programs were
inadequate, but the U.S. Supreme Court decided 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.
