We strongly oppose the Ednovate Charter Organization's plans to establish a charter school on the campus of Woodrow Wilson High School in Los Angeles. Allowing an Ednovate Charter school to co-exist at Wilson will be injurious to the financial well being of Wilson High School, and thus, harm its many remarkable and thriving students who currently benefit from a wide range of high quality educational services.

Adding a Charter school on Wilson's campus will absolutely draw both students and much needed public funding away from Wilson High School. This is not because Wilson High School's instructional abilities are inferior to Ednovate's, it is because the LAUSD will ONLY commit to renovating and upgrading the Ednovate Charter assigned classrooms on Wilson's campus. The students of the new Ednovate Charter will benefit from classrooms equipped with the latest computer technology, new furniture, new paint, new security monitoring systems, etc. The Ednovate Charter students will be allowed access to all of Wilson High School's facilities, i.e., library, cafeteria, gym, etc. Wilson's students will NOT be allowed access to any of Ednovate's classrooms or equipment. Moreover, as host school, Wilson will be required to incur the entire school's janitorial and incidental expenses such as paper towels, toilet paper, light bulbs, etc.

We feel that sharing Wilson's campus with an Ednovate Charter school is unfair to Wilson's current and future students and the Wilson community at large. Sharing Wilson's campus robs Wilson of the valuable growth space it needs to accommodate its own anticipated enrollment increases. Sharing Wilson's campus will create a distinctly separate and UNEQUAL status among students that will not be conducive to a healthy learning environment.

We DO NOT want an Ednovate Charter school to be established on Wilson High School's campus!
