Face it, another Charter High School with an annual budget of $2 million dollars has very long shot competing and the state level, let alone national or global arena. So far the board of directors or the national advisory board of this “non-profit” done nothing to address concerns impress or convince the Marco Island community for:1) Need for another High School that can offer anything better than Lely.2) Their credential to create a world class institution that will start a deluge of parents to move into the Island for hospitality education for their kids.
If you bought a property on the Island in the last 5 years, you are most likely be spending at least $50,000 between taxes, electricity, water and maintenance. If you rent it might cost you half as much in shelter. With the national unemployment “officially” running at %9.6 this is hardly a place to make living.
If public education at Lely is not good for you, there is Charter High School on the Island: The Christian Academy. They have about 6 pupils per teacher, hardly crowded. If the goal is to attract more renters to all those empty condos, we better off taking the $2 million dollar and hire retired local private transportation for the 13 mile trip to Lely.
