Ed, shut up! and go enjoy your retirement and take up a sport!
"And most of us ask why?? Marco has 375 kids in the Charter Middle School of which about 100 are from off Island. About 1/2 of those kids will attend Lely because their parents understand the need for having their kids exposed to "real" life and a social environment in these special years. Elementary and Middle school are totally different than High School.Tell us WHY ?? Without stupid statements about a 20 minute Bus ride.And after you tell us why, we will tell you why not !!Ed issler "
For your information, Lely is not "Real" life. Is it a socialist society that you prefer? I bet you voted for Obama? Marco Charter is an excellent school and top notch. The few families, not 100 kids! that you spew your false numbers out about that live off the island come to Marco to have get the best education from an A school. The families that you spew false numbers about that will still attend Lely, might be correct or less or more. You have no idea, but we know you are the authority on percentages. Do you have a hat that you pull these numbers out of with your rabbit? My children are exposed to good and bad at Lely, and they will survive. But if I had my choice, they would be at a top notch A rated school, the sports would be an after thought. The 20 minute ride can be 30 minutes, I have had many days, when it takes me at the least 30 minutes, if you are in traffic, or grandma and grandpa are out for a nice drive, with the countless tourist looking and not driving the speeds. Children have been killed and lost life from driving the 951 back to Marco, Yes.. these are Marco children so they perhaps do not matter to you? Ask one of the moms who lost a child on this road and maybe you might have a change of heart.You are correct, High school matters the most. That is why, Marco Island should have its own high school. Lely will survive and competition is a good thing. A socialist community is not.
