This is just sad, one more reason why we can't have nice things in P-town. The worse part is that this is something good for the city and our kids. Even worse to see how many things these citizen had vetoed from being done at the site. I hope they do not get their way...

We are older towns. Kids need to learn. Instead of fighting come up with some parking solutions and other things that will make it a bertter situation. The kids started and you can't just throw them in the street. Aren't there any old Catholic Schools that can be used? Charter schools actually give a different education opportunity to young people and are funded at a lesser rate than regular public schools. Not everyone likes the idea but most of them offer a good education.

I don't like the charter schools its only for cretin kids who's parents know someone that can get them in. Its not a fair chance for the rest.

I am sorry but that is not the case, if you apply in time when requested your kid can be in. But if you wait for the last minute then they have a low chance of getting in.
