Location | PAVE Academy Charter School

Location PAVE Academy Charter School

Click the link above to see the Academy's public statement about their plans (or lack thereof) for a location for their school. This issue has been bothering me for a while for several reasons. Initially, I felt that the Department of Education deserved most of the blame for wanting to insert a charter school into an existing public school, but the more I've thought about it, the charter school itself should share responsibility for poor planning on this particular topic. What business (and make no mistake, this IS a business, and a private one) in any other sector would be taken seriously if it made plans to start operating by a specific projected date without having a definite location secured IN ADVANCE? Please. This is what any business person with any common sense would call POOR PLANNING.
