ACLU to Appeal Harrington Decision

The state of New Jersey's Commissioner of Education, Kimberly Harrington, recently renewed the Red Bank Charter School's charter. The ACLU of New Jersey, the Latino Coalition of New Jersey, and Fair Schools Red Bank announced plans to appeal the decision in court.

"The more than 1,400 public school families represented by Fair Schools Red Bank are disappointed with Acting Commissioner Harrington’s decision,” said Wayne Woolley, a member of Fair Schools Red Bank, which advocates for an end to discriminatory practices in the school district. “Although today is not the day that school segregation draws to a close in Red Bank, our organization is grateful for the ACLU’s willingness to fight on behalf of our children and we believe firmly that justice will ultimately prevail to allow every child in our community equal access to all public education opportunities."
