    The sole purpose of Charter Schools is to create a private school with public money, i.e. taxpayers money. This is facilitated by an admissions system that picks and chooses who gets in. If you want an exclusive school with high achievers - fine, create a private school with private money.

    @Impartial7:

    If some well connected person was going to run this school, the charter school board yanking approval would demonstrate such connections dont guarantee a charter. Standards have to be met.

    How many failing neighborhood schools have ever been closed in Utah or any other State? Closing a few Charters shows there is accountability in that system not present in the regular public system.

    The D-News should do some reporting to tell us which Legislators or their families own or run this school.
