Lawsuit finds new evidence in TiZA charter school case
Trying to wash their hands of a lawsuit over alleged promotion of Islam at a Minnesota charter school, state officials said in court filings this month that the school misled investigators looking into complaints against the K-8 academy.
The state education commissioner, asking to be dropped as a defendant in a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota, wrote that some evidence that Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy (TiZA) broke the law emerged only after the suit was filed. Those findings range from documents with forged signatures to an impermissible Arabic language curriculum, according to lawyers for the state.
For its part, the school now argues that the ACLU of Minnesota lacks authority to sue because the organization was dissolved by the secretary of state nearly five years ago.
