I thought we killed the Arabic school Never say die. Let this be a lesson to all of us. The leftists, the Islamists never take no for an answer. No matter how many times they lose, they just don't stop. Think night of the living dead. Remember the Arabic public school that was just defeated in New York last week? Well it's back. They act as if it wasn't defeated ,just postponed or "moved."
The cries of overcrowding that prevented an Arabic language public school from opening within a Brooklyn elementary school may follow it to the new location announced yesterday by the Department of Education.
The Khalil Gibran International Academy's tentative new home is within a Brooklyn high school. An outcry from parents of students at P.S. 282 in Park Slope prevented the school from opening in their children's building this September.
Some students and parents expressed concerns yesterday over whether the new building in South Brooklyn — shared with two other schools, the Brooklyn High School of the Arts and a middle school, the Math and Science Exploratory School — will have enough room to hold the Arabic-themed school.
"It's very crowded," a senior at the high school, Crissie Riddick, 18, said. "I don't think they should put another school in there with us."
Khalil Gibran is slated to share the building for only two years. It will begin with a sixth-grade class of about 60 students starting in September and add a grade a year until it includes the 12th grade.
"We find that people in the arts [translation: leftists-Atlas] tend to be more accepting of people that are a little different," the principal of Brooklyn High School of the Arts, Robert Finley, said. "We anticipate no problems."
