A King County Superior Court judge heard arguments Friday over the constitutionality of Washington’s new charter school law.

A coalition of parents, educators and community groups asked the court to prevent further implementation of the year-old law and declare it unconstitutional.

The judge is considering the case and not expected to rule Friday.

The coalition said the law violates the state Constitution by diverting public school dollars to private organizations not subject to voter control. And the coalition contends the law interferes with the state’s constitutional obligation to pay for public schools.

The coalition includes the state teachers’ union, a group of Washington school administrators, the League of Women Voters, El Centro de la Raza and several parents, children and school advocates.
