This is a good follow up story to the last few asking why OA does better than the others. When was the last time something like this happened at OA? It doesn't! The point is that THOSE kids get an environment without the distractions the other schools are left with. The "chosen few" and their siblings get the private school education, and the rest are left to fend for themselves... AND EVERYONE GETS TO FLIP THE BILL!

I have two kids that have been unable to get into a school of choice so I should have reduced school tax bill for a lower level of education. If I had the money I would hire a lawyer.

To 4:22PM.......get a bunch of like minded parents together and pool your money to hire a good lawyer to initiate a class action lawsuit against the district for this whole lottery scam and unequal access to the same educational opportunites that exist at OA!!!!!!!

Along with the lower level of education, there's the transoptation issue. Assuming your child(ren) attend neighborhood schools, they are costing the district taxpayers a great deal less to get to/from school than many of the "lottery" students.

Incidents occur at Odyssey also, they are just swept under the rug by the administration there so their good school name isn't tarnished. Odyssey is obviously a great school which has been proven, but they also have their share of issues as other schools, they just aren't paraded out in public like the other schools.

And you know this how?

7:05- I'm not the previous poster but I know it from personal experience at that building. The principal doesn't "share" so much especially not the bad news kind of sharing. Besides, with Odyssey being so small they actually do nip trouble in the bud at times. When teachers know you from 6th grade on, lots of intervention ops present themselves.
