They call it a lottery but lets be real. No way they take ESL or resource students.

Neither does Notre Dame, a so-called catholic school that rejects God's handicapped and needy. Some church! Considering what they allowed to happen to innocent children at the hands of pedophile priests, I suppose this should come as no surprise.

It's a public lottery. Anyone who applies gets an entry.

Do you have some evidence of the lottery being rigged?

Everyone who applies gets an entry into the lottery. Everyone.

Do you have any actual evidence of wrongdoing in the execution of the drawing? Or just vague accusations?

The majority of student applications are from the Utica City School District, but 29 are from other schools, said school founder Tolga Hayali, director of the Syracuse Academy of Science Charter School.

Those districts include: Barneveld, Cassville, Frankfort, Holland Patent, Ilion, Marcy, New Hartford, Newport, Rome, Oriskany, Remsen, Yorkville and West Edmeston.

So Utica School taxes will pay for anyone to come to this school.

Not true. Those districts which have students enrolled cover the costs for that student. Most ESL parents do not have knowledge of the option of choosing a charter school. They don't know any better.

The district where the pupil lives is the district that pays for his school. New Hartford will pay for new hartford kids at the charter school. Whitesboro will pay for whitesboro kids at the charter school. Utica will pay for utica kids at the charter school. Got it??

This is the quick guide to charter schools produced by the state Education Department. Please see page 17.

There are exceptions in the law to allow 5 or 30% of the teachers in
a charter school to teach without certification, whichever is less. The
other charter school teachers must be certified by New York State in
some area. Those exempted must meet one of four specific criteria.

Utica residents were given preference. That's in the charter. Those outside Utica would only be considered if there were not enough applicants from Utica. If there were more than enough applicants from Utica the outsiders would not even be included in the lottery. So, no Uticans will not pay for students from outside the district.

The head of this charter school has stated that 100% of the teachers will be NYS certified regardless what the rules allow.

Read up on the gulden movement and charter schools. Some scary stuff out there...
This charter school is linked to a Turkish religious movement, known as the Gulen movement.. I'll even link the google search:
