NYC parents/teachers file lawsuit against city over cuts to school budgets

Fed up with the impending education budget cuts, two teachers and two parents jointly filed a lawsuit this week against New York City, the Department of Education (DOE), and Schools Chancellor David Banks. The group is demanding an injunction to halt the $215 million budget cuts to public schools planned for next year.

The $215 million slash to schools budgets, out of the DOE’s total $37.6 billion budget, was based on the Fair Student Funding formula and projected decreases in school enrollments.
