The Rhode Island Board of Education is holding a 2-day retreat that had been the subject of a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union.
The board had planned to make the 2-day meeting on Sunday and Monday private, but the state chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union sued to open it.
The ACLU argued that the board would be discussing a controversial new graduation requirement that students pass a standardized test, and that the discussion should be done in public.
A state Superior Court judge agreed.
The meeting is being held at Rhode Island College. The board is scheduled to discuss the testing requirement on Sunday afternoon.
