Teachers’ union to sue state over education reform law
CHARLESTON — Not content to let the new education reform law stand, the West Virginia Education Association announced today it would file suit to block the law in court.
According to a press release today, the WVEA sent Attorney General Patrick Morrisey notice of its intent to sue the state to block HB 206, the education reform package passed by the West Virginia Legislature June 24 and signed into law by Gov. Jim Justice June 28.
“While we opposed this legislation on principle, we have always held that HB 206, and all the previous versions of the omnibus education bill, violates the provisions of West Virginia’s Constitution,” said WVEA President Dale Lee.
