Lois - you are completely misinformed about the money.
For each student who attends a charter school - the county school district pays $2,464 to the charter school and the state pays $4,692.
Parents aren't bringing ANY money to Roger Bacon except to pay fees for extracurricular activities.
Taxpayers in Brunswick County and across the state are paying for the kids to study there - not parents.
The question we can't get answered is, how much of that tax money is Baker Mitchell spending on the students who attend his charter schools and how much is he putting in his and other administrators's pockets? He refuses to answer that question.
