    SAN FRANCISCO  — A coalition of school districts and education groups sued the state of California on Wednesday, seeking the restoration of more than $2 billion in funding they say public schools are owed under state law.

    The lawsuit seeks the return of $2.1 billion in education funding that was cut from the 2011-2012 state budget. The plaintiffs say districts are owed that money under Proposition 98, a 1988 voter initiative that guarantees California public schools a minimum level of funding.
