New York City officials have selected a new site for a controversial public school focusing on Arab language and culture after opposition from parents stopped an earlier plan. The academy, which has been painted by conservative commentators as a potential incubator for radicalism, was to share space with an elementary school, but will instead be placed in the same building as the Brooklyn High School of the Arts and the Math & Science Exploratory School, said David Cantor, spokesman for the city Department of Education. The school will stay in that building at least two years. "This is not a tentative decision," Cantor said. "The school will open at this site in September." Parents had protested the original plan on the grounds that adding a school to the facility might diminish resources available to their children.
