New site selected for NYC Arabic language school 

NEW YORK: City officials have selected a new site for a controversial public 
school focusing on Arab language and culture after opposition from parents 
stopped an earlier plan.

The Khalil Gibran International Academy, which has been painted by conservative 
commentators as a potential incubator for radicalism, was to share space with 
an elementary school, but will instead be placed in the same building as the 
Brooklyn High School of the Arts and the Math & Science Exploratory School, 
said David Cantor, spokesman for the city Department of Education. The school 
will stay in that building at least two years.
