PLF files reply brief to halt discriminatory admissions program in New York Schools

Today Pacific Legal Foundation filed this reply  in support of the preliminary injunction motion in Christa McAuliffe PTO v. De Blasio, in which PLF asks the Court to stop De Blasio’s discriminatory changes to the admissions process for New York Schools. For months, De Blasio has implied that there were too many Asians at the top public schools in New York. As a result, he announced changes to the admissions process that would essentially cut off access to those elite schools to scores of low-income Asian students. Representing a coalition of parents and advocacy groups, PLF filed suit to prevent these discriminatory changes from going into effect. A decision is expected before the end of February.
