Goodbye Eric (Grannis), good bye EricWe have always said that so-called demand for charters is a mostly homg grown Charters can be beaten back when the community organizes.

Additionally, only three of its students lived in the neighborhood where the school is located, documents show."
Can't you just see the ultimate in chutzpa? Where they claim the poor kiddies should not have their school closed but were always perfectly happy to crow about how good it was to close schools.
