DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The fight over the Home Rule charter in Dallas public schools heads back to court tomorrow.

DISD’s largest teacher group is trying to stop the process of selecting a commission, which would ultimately draft the charter.

Last week, DISD school board trustees named four teachers and two alternates to serve on the commission.

But Alliance AFT, the group that represents thousands of local teachers, has filed for a restraining order to stop the process.

The teacher association believes the group nominating and selecting teachers to serve on the commission has no legal authority to do so.

“We’ve not addressed this before, because we haven’t addressed home rule before like anyone in the state, so want it done legally because our students are watching, and it needs to be done the right way if it’s going to be pushed forward,” said Rena Honea, President of Alliance AFT.

Both sides appeared before a judge on Thursday, but no action was taken. The hearing will resume Friday morning.
