In a statement he penned Monday, ABOR chair Bill Ridenour said the lawsuit will allow the board to seek clarification on how best to provide education “as nearly free as possible,” but that he was disappointed in the way it was delivered. “The AG’s lawsuit — while it makes for good headlines — does nothing to change the burden for students and their families,” the statement read. “The suit is full of attacks, but offers no constructive remedies.”
