NY1 has an article about how charter schools in NYC still get rooms rent free
On Tuesday, city charter schools won a legal battle to share space in public school buildings free of cost.
A State Supreme Court Judge denied a preliminary injunction that would have forced charter schools to immediately pay rent.
Charter school advocates said the ruling was a major victory for the city’s parents and children.
City officials agreed, saying since charter schools do not get any public funding, paying rent would force them to close.
However, public school parents were still hopeful to win when the case comes to trial.
They filed the lawsuit against the Department of Education back in September, saying the department was illegally giving 100 charter schools free space in city public schools.
