BX charter school put on probationPosted: Updated:
City education officials say a charterschool in the South Bronx has violated state admissions laws and has been put on probation.
The Academic Leadership Charter School is the first city charter school to be disciplined for breaking rules mandating random admissions. Officials say the school may have interviewed applicants before enrollment, which violates the admission lottery system.
The school board chairman says the lottery will be overhauled.
