City parents’ demand for charter-school seats just hit a new high, with nearly 80,000 lottery applicants. Unfortunately, the effort to choke charters’ growth means they’re competing for just 26,900 available seats. In the latest outrage, Carranza refuses to declare an emergency to end-run technical issues that stand in the way of giving the Success Academy its promised classrooms in a Bed-Stuy school building that has 900 empty seats.

Earlier this year, Success Academy was approved for two new middle schools – SA East Flatbush, and SA Lafayette. SA Lafayette would be the one SA is proposing to locate at the space approved for SA Bed-Stuy 3 at PS25 Eubie Blake building at 787 Lafayette Avenue. When the Hon. Judge Levine issued a stay on May 24th to keep P.S. 25 Eubie Blake open while the lawsuit parents have brought to keep it open gets resolved, what was not discussed was the impact this decision would have on the Success Academy’s (SA) plans to open a middle school at this location.

As New York City parents debate proposals to increase diversity at public schools on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, one example of integration is Success Academy, a charter school that faced stiff opposition when it opened in fall of 2011.
