Unbelievable. The timing of the lawsuit makes it appear they're trying to usurp the voters if we go against their funding demands. It's important to try to work with all entities, especially when education is involved, but that's hard to do when California's teachers' unions sue the state. After all, they're really suing the taxpayers.
