ATLANTA (CBS46) — A coalition of Cobb County mothers are suing the Cobb County School District, its superintendent and the Board of Education.

The lawsuit alleges that the district is violating federal law by not implementing measures to keep students safe from the coronavirus.

Because of that, the parents claim the students aren't getting the best education possible.

Cobb County Schools does not have a mask mandate. It only says that masks are optional.

The lawsuit was filed Friday in federal court in Atlanta. There are 107,000 students in the Cobb County School District.
