Teachers at Teach for American (TFA) are planning to stay at their current positions at their high school in Brooklyn, New York, even after a judge blocked their plan to shut the school down.
The decision by U.S. District Judge Daniel Emmet to block the closure was announced on Thursday, the day after New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law a new law that allows charter schools to continue operating without state oversight.
“Our hope is that this will provide us some breathing room, a way to move forward and find some stability in the long term,” said TFA founder and CEO Karen Kallstrom in a statement released on Thursday.
“We will not go quietly.
Our mission remains the same and we will not be intimidated by the law.”
Kallstrom has said the charter school will be “re-opened and the children will be back in school.”
The New York state education department said that, as part of its appeal, it will have to show that the closure is “not the only factor” that has made it difficult for the schools to meet their enrollment targets.
TFA’s closure will be the first for TFA in the U.K., according to the education department, and the last for a U.Y.S.-based charter school.
Kallstadt, who had been a senior vice president at the company, previously told the Associated Press that TFA had been “out of the business” since 2013.
The company, which has been operating in New York since 2009, has seen an increase in enrollment and revenue over the last several years.
It has been the subject of a number of federal investigations since 2014.
In January, the U-S.
Department of Education sued TFA for violations of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), a federal law that bars schools from discriminating on the basis of disability.
The Education Department also alleged that T FA discriminated against African-American students and students with disabilities in admissions.
The decision by the New York attorney general to sue TFA came after a letter from Cuomo’s education commissioner, which also accused TFA of violating the federal law.
T FA’s board said that the letter was “politically motivated” and that it was “a tactic to try to silence us.”
