ABSTRACT
The article reports on a lawsuit filed by the United Federation of Teachers (UFT), the New York state conference of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and other groups to prevent the opening or expansion of 18 charter schools in New York City. These schools would share space with traditional public schools, which the plaintiffs claim would result in unequal access to school resources. Minority parents' views on the suit are also discussed.
