THREE CAMDEN PARENTS DENIED IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO CONSTITUTIONALLY ADEQUATE EDUCATION FOR THEIR CHILDREN
Early this afternoon attorneys for parents of three Camden public school students who filed a class action complaint with Education Commissioner Cerf, against the Camden Board of Education, seeking the immediate transfer of their children from Camden Public Schools, announced that the application for immediate relief was denied by Judge Edward J. Delanoy, Jr ALJ.
Attorneys urged commissioner of education to reject the recommendation of administration law judge. (See Joint Statement Attached)
“E3 is committed to helping these children escape public schools that everyone agrees are failing,” says Dick Zimmer, Esq., E3 Legal Committee Chairman. ”We will pursue this matter as far as necessary until justice is secured for the parents and children.”
“Children forced to attend failing schools are imprisoned in a system that provides them no hope for a future of employment, or participation in our civil society. This is the civil rights issue of our time,” said Reverend Therman Evans MD, E3 Chairman.
“Our society cannot continue to be comfortable with our failure to educate the children of Camden to their full potential. This is just the first step of many,” says Christy Davis Jackson, E3 CEO/President.
