A very nice letter, and this teacher is in the know, as she also has a child that attended Charter. A Charter High School should be allowed to proceed, it will bring property values up, and provide excellent education to many students. Children from Marco say how easy Lely is after attending Marco Charter, this is not a good thing. Middle school should prepare the students for harder courses. High school should prepare all students for college, and many Lely students are struggling with the work load of college, from the easy curriculum of high school. A Marco high school would bring competition to Lely. Competition is a good thing! It gives a check and balance, Lely school needs the competition to make it a better school for the A' students, and middle students and of course the low grade students that it continuously caters to at the present. Any extra funding for this school,goes first and foremost to the lower group of student. This is not acceptable, all extra monies should be split between lower grades, middle and A students. The new school on Marco, would hold Lely accountable to the Marco students,and many other students and parents that do not accept C grades or C students. As far as parents volunteering, the majority are Marco parents and the funds do not necessarily go back to all the students. Regardless of income levels, and grade levels this school needs to help all students not just the C or D students, when Lely learns to treat all students fairly and equally then this school will have a better chance of surviving with A, and B students,not just the C,and D students that it caters to. If you cater to only C and D students, you become a C or D school.
