Judge Rejects Camden School District Transfer Request

A New Jersey judge has rejected a petition brought by parents who asked to move three students immediately out of the Camden public schools.

The boys’ mothers filed a legal petition last week claiming the school district is not providing an adequate education and that their sons should be moved to other schools.

In a decision released Wednesday, Administrative Law Judge Edward J. Delanoy, Jr., found that the petitioners did not meet the necessary burden of proof to support their claims.

The boys’ lawyers had hoped to be able to use the claim to give others in the district of nearly 15,000 options to choose other schools, too.

They say they will appeal the decision to the state’s Commissioner of Education.
