NYC Mayor de Blasio hit with 3 new lawsuits in charter school fight

 

Mayor de Blasio is getting hit with three new lawsuits by charter-school supporters, his traditional enemies — just as his pals who despise the popular institutions are threatening him with legal action for offering a compromise.

The Success Academy, a charter-school network run by his nemesis Eva Moskowitz, is filing a federal civil-rights lawsuit to overturn his decision to disallow its Central Harlem middle school from sharing space with a public school.

Opening a second front, Success officials are going to Albany to file papers with state Education Commissioner John King to try to reverse City Hall’s decision to keep two new Success Academy elementary schools from opening.

One is scheduled for shared space at Murry Bergtraum HS downtown and the other at August Martin HS in Queens.

All three co-locations had been approved last year by then-Mayor Mike Bloomberg.
