The Minnesota Supreme Court will hear the lawsuit brought by Minneapolis and St. Paul school parents who say that segregation has denied poor and minority children an adequate education.
On Wednesday the Supreme Court order agreed to review the case. The Minnesota Court of Appeals had thrown out the suit in March.
A group of Minneapolis and St. Paul School District parents sued in November 2015, saying the state knew about segregation along race and poverty lines and didn’t give students a sufficient education. Attorneys called for a metrowide integration plan and other changes to help segregated schools.
