On July 10, six Success parents filed a lawsuit in federal court alleging that the DOE panel that handles special-ed cases in the South Bronx, known as the Committee on Special Education 1, routinely discriminates against Success Academy scholars and disproportionately deprives them of their right to an appropriate education. Liz Vandlik, a Success Academy principal, described how she wants CSE 1 to do its part to help this South Bronx community.
