BLYTHE - Pictured are the Roadrunners (grades 1-2) as they listen to Colleen Applegate on the first day of school at Desert Learning School on Sept. 3. The school, grades Kindergarten through eighth, is located at 721 E. Chanslorway. They began their day with a pancake breakfast and the Pledge of Allegiance. The students then went to their classrooms to begin their new year.

You got that right. Their graduates before were high-class spoiled snobs, "better" tham than others.

We are thrilled with the opportunity we were able to offer our son. The school and staff are wonderful. Thank you to everyone who helped bring this educational option to Blythe.

This the problem in this town. Some hate change, or anything, and anybody. That could take their power, or money away.

It amounts to greed. Just power hungry Parasites. Nothing new here in Blythe, about these Power hungry Parasites. (PHP)

Now they will start an Income Status War, so when will someone claim that it is for white high income kids.

What a ridiculous and moronic statement. I don't believe I have ever read anything by Weete that said or implied that "low income" correlates with "bad parenting", "takers", "parasites". Just because a parent has plenty of money to dole out, it does not mean they are good parents, and you know it as well as he does. Unfortunately, with politicians these days, some WANT kids to grow up and buy into their food stamps, welfare, etc. rather than encourage young people to be responsible for themselves and earn their own way, and encourage their kids to follow the same value system. The liberals like it when they can suck people into the notion that they "deserve" a good life, rather than earn it themselves. Check it out. Show me where Weete says they are automatically "parasites" if they are low-income.

Of course its for low income kids. Since most kids can't work legally at that age I would say all kids are low income.

@ el pica. If he,or anybody want's to know about the cost of the school. Then simply pick up the phone, and call the school for that information.
Is it not better to get that information yourself, than to receive it secondhand?

In the end, I believe that those were not his intentions.

@ @el pica buyas: In Weete World, low income means "taker," "parasite," "bad parenting," "behavior problem," so it is no wonder that el pica buyas would think that using that term is inherently demeaning. I thought that Desert Learning Center had advertised themselves quite well as an alternative education choice for students of any income or academic level. They have had an office open for most of the summer, held an open house and ribbon cutting event, met with community members, hired locally to remodel and landscape, and bought local radio time and newspaper space. That doesn't mean that a well-meaning citizen might not still have questions...

In what way is "low income kids" necessarily a "demeaning" comment??? It sounded like a fair question to me. Are there income requirements for enrollment? Is there a sliding scale for tuition? I suppose someone will point out that jack's lack of punctuation and capitalization is indicative of a lack of education. Nothing in his 6 word comment sounded like a jab at the school to me...

@ jack from blythe. Nice way to demean a school. Give it a chance, so why are you being like this?
