After an almost three-hour hearing, the Monterey County Board of Education on Wednesday unanimously rejected a petition to form CORAL Academy charter school, which is looking for a home in Seaside.

Well, I guess providing a quality education within a budget isn't as easy as many people assume and, perhaps, it is best left to the professionals.

I know the parents who spearheaded this CORAL program have good intentions, but it looks like they should focus their energies on working with the existing public school system versus diluting it by trying to form their own little education fiefdom.

It's hard to draw any other conclusion when you read the "reality" of the Herald reports on both the Monterey County and MPUSD boards rejecting CORAL proposals for being "unrealistic."

You obviously do not have a child currently enrolled in MPUSD.
Coral WILL get there Charter approved this year by MCOE, and then another Charter is coming down the pipe and then yet another one is in the works! Bye bye MPUSD!

Organizational change in the public sector?! I fell asleep reading it. Yawn yawn yawn.
