In the best interests of all Mount Holly citizens, not just those who can afford to send their kids to this school, why should the town annex this property?

But you know it will, somebody will grease the big palm of our greasy Mayor..........

Have to agree. Just by looking at it, I am sure the Mayor has already sold the faculty an employee benefits package just like he has sold the town of Mount Holly their employee benefits package for years and has made quite a buck off these dealings. So, with the Mount Holly City Council in his pocket, I would say this is a done deal.

There is no tuition for any charter school. Any child can go there if they are picked thru a lottery drawing........

Actually the school is constantly asking parents for money and doing fundraisers for the new facilities.

Big ripoff.

Most of the teachers aren't certified.

You already pay taxes to support the public schools. Send your kids to a public school and volunteer to make them better.
