The NAACP of New York City has filed a lawsuit against the NYC Department of Education because of the inequities in space allocation, funding, etc, that occur when a charter school is co-located in a public school building. The video above is lengthy but lays out the premise that is prompting the lawsuit.
Many Denver schools are facing this same issue, even with supposedly district-run co-locations. Remember Lake International (middle) school? That was a restarted IB program, a phase-out IB program, and a West Denver Prep co-location. The phase-out IB program was running on fumes, even running out of copy paper, while the other programs were showered with resources and space.
Denver doesn’t do co-location any better, either. Watch the video, and tell us what you think by commenting here.
