Why should I sign a petition that doesn't equally represent or even mention what the lawsuit is trying to accomplish? If it's just cutting costs, alright, but it could be doing some amazing overhaul of the system to help kids as well.

Try to represent both sides, as they almost certainly both have legitimate reasons.

I was just trying to read this cause but I ended up clicking that I support it. I ABSOLUTELY do not support it. The push to increase limits on charter schools may do some good, but, more than anything else, it is a ploy designed to destroy our public schools system and the power of public sector unions.
I could go on, but for more information, see THE DEATH AND LIFE OF THE GREAT AMERICAN SCHOOL SYSTEM by Diane Ravitch. Charter schools are a great option to have, but they are not generally superior to public schools, and the reason they are being so heavily promoted these days has nothing to do with the public good.
