"Pay-for-Play" Academic Programs?
Original post made by Stacey on Feb 5, 2010
I looked at the article because the beginning introduces this program as an alternative to CSR. I found it interesting that parents pay extra to have their kids take part in it.
"The wait list for this program hovers around 60-80 families; hence, admission is determined by lottery. Parents pay approximately $1,170 for their K-2 students to take part, and $900 for students in grades three through five. The funds primarily pay for classroom aides and the Spanish teacher."
