Of course there are openings at Roosevelt and South. They are crappy schools. The inmates are running the asylums, as we saw when the South students staged a walk out that resulted in violence. And Roosevelt had a murder on the football field!
The folks who work hard so they can afford to live in southwest Minneapolis deserve to send their kids to a good school, and it shouldn't cost 40 million dollars to do it. That's just ridiculous!

You're talking about the 'filthy rich,' I meant the 'merely rich' who take advantage of the excellent public schools in the suburbs and wealthy Minneapolis neighborhoods. They pay exorbitant property taxes to support those schools, while the student growth is generated by inner city third world immigrants who have more kids than average and are usually on the receiving end of the tax burden.
