Though she insists that she "believes in school choice," New York City Public Advocate Letitia James is pushing a lawsuit to block the co-location of charter schools with existing district schools. She says that the process for deciding co-location was "pro forma" and did not follow state regulations. "The 36 [charters] that the mayor approved are the subject of our lawsuit," says James.
