In August, 1990, the United States District Court, Southern District of Florida, issued a Consent Decree giving the court power to enforce an agreement between the Florida State Board of Education and a coalition of eight groups represented by Multicultural Education, Training and Advocacy, Inc. (META). The Consent Decree settlement terms focus on the following six issues:
