A New York court upheld a ruling that the creation of a special school district for a Chasidic community in upstate New York is unconstitutional. The decision by the Appellate Division of the New York State Supreme Court marks the third time that a court has ruled against the Kiryas Joel school district — which would give the Satmar community in Orange, N.Y., control of education for its developmentally disabled children. The community is expected to appeal the decision.
