I am not a lawyer and don't know how strong the case is but I don't believe a lawsuit will be enough to stop receivership. Receivership is part of the anti-public school Education Transformation Act of 2015.
While I support the lawsuit, fighting to get rid of the law that created receivership is necessary as it seems to me the law allows the State Education Commissioner to appoint a receiver who can put aside union contracts in certain schools. If the Commissioner didn't follow the law to the letter, then a lawsuit is not a bad idea. However, a movement to repeal the law that created receivership would seem like a much better tactic or at least one that should be used along with the lawsuit.
In addition, this lawsuit only impacts schools not labeled persistently struggling if I read it correctly. Those in persistently struggling schools might be thrown under the bus.
Can someone please explain to me why our union is not attempting to repeal Cuomo's awful education law?
