Really? These kids cant afford tonpay $1.75 for lunch. How are they going to afford tuition? Hmm. I think it is nothing more than a publicity move.

There are many ways for family's to fund their kid's private education at the private school of their choice through state run programs i.e. SB10, tax credits ext. It is insulting and irresponsible to suggest that family's can't have the best education they see fit for their kids because you assume they can't afford it.

If you actually read the entire article you would see that theu are only offering 50 extra spaces at a reduced rate. That is not going to accommodate the number of kids affected by all that has happened. Also, I'm not saying they don't deserve a quality education, just that this company isn't going to be the solution to the APS cheating scandal. I have taught in these schools and many of the children we are talking about only eat one meal a day-the one they are served for free at school. Asking them to give any amount of money in order to receive a decent education is irresponsible.

I think this school should be commended for its efforts to help these children. I believe the parents of these children are responsible for their food and clothing. If they can't afford to feed them they should not have them. Think of the money Beverly Hall received in bonuses and how many children that money would feed. BTW, that is taxpayer money also.
