I was confused by the Oct. 29 article Ben Gamla charter schools take in millions in public funds as founder lives half a world away. To my knowledge, there is no requirement for a business owner to live in the district or state where his business is located.
I am not in favor of any charter school. They receive taxpayer money and are not required to meet the same standards as public schools. But what point were the writers trying to make? That the school is controversial? What does that have to do with where Peter Deutsch lives? The school seems to be playing by the School Board rules.
If you don’t like the school receiving money from the state, then make your case on those grounds — not on where Deutsch resides.
