Del Rey Residents Keen on Forcing Out New Charter School

Hosted by

After a year of increasingly angry disputes with neighbors in Los Angeles' Del Rey area, east of Marina del Rey and near Mar Vista. Parents whose kids go to Citizens of the World Charter School plan to show up at tomorrow's meeting of the LA Unified School Board. Citizens of the World occupies three portable classrooms unused by Stoner Elementary, and the complaints of local residents began with increased traffic. They claim the Charter School parents have been "dismissive" and "elitist." Now, the School District says Citizens of the World has failed to meet the deadline for its application to stay -- and even expand — next year.
