Why Hate the Mayoral Academy?

28Sep10

It’s interesting to see how strongly the unions are opposed to the Cumberland Mayoral Academy (Blackstone Valley Prep).  It would seem that the parents of the area think a little differently.   The Woonsocket Call recently described how the Academy is looking to double their size, due to an increase in applications.

“The amount of applications is significantly bigger,” Magee said. “Last year, we had 143 eligible applications for 76 spots at the kindergarten level. This year, we have 305.”

Is that a sign of a bad thing?  It’s interesting how this school and Mayor Dan McKee is getting praise from everyone around the state, with the sole exception being the teachers’ union heads.  Heck, the school got more than 100 applications for just 6 teaching openings.  So just how bad of a place is this school?
