Officials are considering a new location for Brooklyn's controversial Arabic-themed school, but parents at the proposed site aren't happy about it.
At a meeting with education officials Tuesday night, parents from PS287 were uneasy about older students moving into the building used by their younger kids.
"It's a bad idea altogether," said PTA President Edgardo Rivera. "We want the elementary school to stay an elementary school."
Less than a year old, the school has been mired in controversy since its inception, with its founding principal stepping down last summer, then suing the city to get her job back.
This also is not the first time that the school's location has met resistance. Originally slated for PS 282 in Park Slope, the school moved into the Math and Science Exploratory School instead after PS 282 parents caused an uproar.
Schools spokeswoman Melody Meyer said that education officials will ultimately decide where the school should go but are taking parents' concerns into consideration.
