Girls Prep founder and executive director Miriam Lewis Raccah said her school is as squeezed for space as any of the district's other schools and so she empathized with parents' concerns. But Girls Prep has been successful in a small, shared space, Raccah said, and so could other schools.

"The civil right is to an excellent education," she said.
