This whole idea of charter schools for areas such as this is a total misuse of what charter schools were originally set up for. As leader proponent, Ms. Barrett, stated in a previous article she saw the good that charter schools did for New York City Schools. How could we possibly compare those, extraordinary, needs to what we have available at Lely? Many of New York City Schools would bend over backwards for that improvement.
This is what happens when a good idea gets overplayed, expanded and misused for absolutely selfish, unreasonable purposes. If we really need a high school on Marco we should do it with the whole of Marco involved, not some small group digging for loopholes, to keep their kids from leaving the perceived, protection of this island.
Nothing less than a referendum should be put on the agenda by City Council to determine whether the majority of Marco wants a high school rather than forcing one down our throats by means of the flawed requirements in the Florida State Education Law.
