About a dozen local school boards are suing the state over a new law requiring eye exams for children entering kindergarten. An attorney for the School Boards Association contends the law violates the state constitution's mandate for free public education. The group also claims the cost of the exams, up to $120, would prevent some children from attending school. The father of a Wake County child also filed a separate suit.
