Court Asked to Block N.J. Voucher Suit

Attorney General Stuart Rabner filed a motion this month to dismiss the lawsuit, brought by 12 parents, who are supported by a nonprofit, Newark-based school choice group called Excellent Education for Everyone. The suit argues that the parents’ children are stuck in schools that consistently post low standardized-test scores.
