NEW YORK (CBS 2) — The fight over New York City’s new schools chancellor may end up in court.

Protesters led by Brooklyn Councilman Charles Barron were vowing to file a temporary restraining order Monday to prevent Cathie BlackĀ  from taking the post.

That promise came amid reports that Black, who has no education experience, will receive a waiver from the state allowing her to replace Joel Klein.

Critics said the former Hearst Media executive just isn’t qualified.

“When you bring unqualified people in, and you continue to do the same things over and over gain, expecting a different result, that’s insanity,” Barron said.

“We’re not going to get disrespected anymore. Enough is enough,” said Inez Rodriguez, Brooklyn activist.

Reports said the waiver was contingent on former educator Shael Polakow-Suransky becoming senior deputy chancellor and chief academic officer.
