Officials say arrangement might put PS 9 in Brooklyn at a disadvantage

From The New York Daily News: The state of New York has overturned a deal that called for Public School 9 in Brooklyn to give up room to Brooklyn East Collegiate Charter School. State Commissioner David Steiner voided the city decision to locate the charter there, citing concerns about whether plans to distribute space were equitable. The charter school was slated to get more time in the library. The city had also divided time in the gym equally, despite the fact that the public school has more students.
