School groups challenge Calif. algebra mandate
Groups representing school administrators and local education boards are challenging California's requirement that all eighth-graders be tested in algebra.

The California School Boards Association and the Association of California School Administrators filed the lawsuit Thursday.

It seeks an injunction to prevent the state Board of Education from imposing the requirement. California is the first state to mandate algebra classes at such an early level.

The lawsuit, filed in Sacramento County Superior Court, says the action by the state board was taken in violation of the state's open-meeting laws. It says the public was not given adequate time to comment on the policy.
