Why can't we support it with the $30,000 per student that we send to the county now?
You know, I personally don't find the commute to be all that bad, though it is a little far. My real interest is in seeing a curriculum that challenges the kids.....more of a college preperatory school. I attended a small college preperatory high school for two years and graduate from a VERY large public high school. Both were excellent schools, but the prep school was what prepared me for college...no doubt. In addition, the smaller school allowed a far greater percentage of the kids to participate in sports and we were reasonbly competitive in the city.
I am not denegrating Lely. It may be just fine for kids. Ms. Tenney herself is a graduate and she is obviously very successful. I just hate being taxed at $30,000 a head and not having any local input or opportunity for our local kids. It just is NOT democratic.
