This lawsuit should inspire de Blasio to get serious about school violence
More victims of school violence came forward last week to join the civil-rights federal lawsuit against the city Department of Education. This is a movement that deserves to grow.
Parents backed by Families for Excellent Schools first filed the suit in March. They allege that violence deprives black and Hispanic public-school students of their right to a sound, basic education — and that DOE refuses to confront the problem.
