A former Nampa School District superintendent of schools, Russ Joki, has filed a lawsuit in district court contending that school fees are unconstitutional under a 1970 Idaho Supreme Court case that he says ruled educational fees unconstitutional for public schools, says a story in the Spokesman-Review.

Joki contends fees assessed on his granddaughters to register for kindergarten and a fee for his grandson to enroll in high school violate the 1970 court ruling, saying he filed the suit because "someone has to raise that question."

Joki is joined in the suit by 15 others in the state, all grandparents of Idaho public school students, according to the story.
