Executive Director Patricia Ladd has fought for freedom from a beaurocratic union lead school into a caring, child-first attitude community lead campus. Well done Patricia and keep fighting; the students and community are behind you. Isn’t it too bad that the school district actually forced her to look else where for postitive leadership? Thank goodness, they forced her out because now she has developed a program that most urban and inner city schools would love to have. How dare they try to get what they lost back.
