A friend of mine sent me this link and the text of a comment on DailyKos that describes, in the mother’s writing, how her son was arrested on Friday, 5/25, at Toledo’s Performing Arts School of Metropolitan Toledo (this is the website to which the Ohio Council of Community Schools links but it looks quite…non-operational; the site for OCCS hasn’t been updated for long periods of time, according to date marks on the site itself).
I’ve emailed Lisa Renee of Glass City Jungle to get her take and input on the situation, since she is always so close to this stuff. She informs me that the local media hasn’t mentioned the arrest at all and I’ve found nothing to controvert her observation.
Anyone else with knowledge, feel free to comment. As I’ve written Lisa Renee, and I know it sounds a little naive, but I just can’t understand: there are students, parents and teachers who want the charters to work. Why is that so hard?
