Feb 15, 2013 — The politicians pay a lot of lip service to the uidea of school choice. There are many traditional schools in District 4. There are many charter schools in District 4. There are NO Progressive Middle Schools in District 4. The CPE schools have a 39 year history of success. CPE 1 is already housed in the JREC Building, CPE 2 is 2 blocks away - it is a natural location for this expansion. I do not see why a new, unproven charter school should be prioritized over CPE 2 in this space.
