Educators Sue Federal Government

The Lubbock Educators Association says the No Child Left Behind Act is leaving school districts behind-financially.

Wednesday, they joined the National Education Association and several school districts across the nation in launching a lawsuit against U.S. Department of Education.

Cherie Jenkins, President of the Lubbock Educators Association says the government is not following its promise to help fund the act.

"We will not require the state or local school districts to fund rules or regulations imposed by No Child Left Behind. All the regulations will be funded by the federal government. They've broken that promise." says Jenkins.

The No Child Left Behind Act is a ratings and regulations system to keep schools and students academically acceptable.
