Isi artikelColumbia, New York University and the Universities of Michigan and Oregon are colleges six-year old Alexander Ferguson is considering attending come 2022, brags his mother Iris Ayala. But because of a lawsuit affecting charter schools in New York City, it is not clear if Alexander's current school, Harlem Success Academy, will open after the summer break. A teachers' union and the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People (NAACP), a civil-rights group, filed a lawsuit last month to stop 22 failing schools from closing and also to prevent 19 charter schools from moving in with existing district schools. (Charter schools are independently managed but government-funded.) The lawsuit claims that the city's Department of Education did not follow state law in deciding on the closures and assigning the 19 "co-locations", which it denies. The NAACP is involved in the case because co-locating with charter schools, it says, is akin to segregation. To accommodate the charter schools, the plaintiffs claim, district schools lose library time, give up space and oblige children to eat lunch at 10am so that charter schools can use the cafeteria at normal lunch time.
