“I think there is elitism and racism among supporters,” he said. “Most families who live in Marco can afford private school education if necessary.”
Well, Mr. Swiacki I would suggest you visiting administrators at both schools on Marco and ask for some demographics. At least at Tommie Barfield every third child receives free or reduced price lunch, meaning that those kids are from low or very moderate income families. It is so funny that so many people think that Marco is inhabited with millionaires. Yes, there are plenty of wealthy old people here, but young families with children, people who have to make a living by going to work are very far from being wealthy and can only dream about private schools for their kids. Plus, there are plenty of private schools in Naples.
