Odyssey has make advancements towards “diversity”! School leaders Nick Manolakos is doing a GREAT job and is very in-tuned to diversity concerns.
Now as far as Odyssey’s and and any other charter school lining up crying foul re: capital funding! TFB
Delaware charter school laws are flawed and seeded with racism crafted by people with no moral conscious. The playing field needs to be level with open admissions with blind lotteries. Charter school application should be simple! Name, address and phone number. No transcripts from current schools, no asking about IEPs, no asking about income. Public school should not reject any student that applies. Yes we have Choice schools with many schools closed to Choice due overcrowding! The call for education reform in America has been centered on the achievement-gap. To create charter schools to serve honor level students and excluded at-risk student is immoral! HOWEVER, we can blame the charter school leaders and schools all we want! But at the end of the day the law dictates all!
Try and debate the charter school law without naming any charter schools. Not an easy task but that is where the debate is. I am not going to bash parents who chose the Choice option such a charters that is best for that child. They are only parents wanted the best for their child.
