I think the answer is "no". We have nowhere to house a charter school and the moneys we have need to go into the schools we already have. I don't really understand all the deep issues here, but it seems to me from what I have read that having a charter school here would be divisive, discriminative and purely selfish for those leading the way in this proposal.
It sounds very like "if you don't give me what I want then I will find another way to get it, so like it or lump it".
If I found my children acting like this, I would punish them for bad behavior. This is sending a very strange message to our kids. This is not the way responsible adults should behave and consequently not the type of role modeling we want.
