Four families from the National Teachers Academy who filed suit against Chicago Public Schools earlier this summer are now asking a Cook County judge to grant an injunction that would prevent the district from proceeding with its plan to phase out K-8 classes at their school beginning next fall.
“Basically we’re asking the court to stop CPS from moving forward in their plans to close NTA,” said Ashley Fretthold, an attorney with the Legal Assistance Foundation of Metropolitan Chicago who is representing the plaintiffs. “So basically any activities related to that, we’re asking that they stop moving forward on that now while we resolve the ultimate complaint.”
