Bullis is full of bullying bullsh*t ... my two middle fingers are raised in your direction Bullis = YOU'RE NUMBER 1! If the school district buckles and concedes ANYTHING to the bullying tactics of Bullis, it will only invite MORE of the same from other incompetent "charter schools".

BCS's offer is only a PR stunt. They know they are unpopular. They conducted a focus group recently that did not go well. LASD parents and non-parents in the groups told the facilitator that BCS does not exemplify what a charter school is supposed to be and that the BCS folks have an sense of entitlement that has disgusted many people.
BCS' luncheon where they made this announcement was set up far in advance and included charter school movement leaders, yet LASD Board members weren't invited to the announcement until the day before. If this were a genuine offer, why make a big media production out of it? Why not tell the district earlier? Why not invite district officials when others received their invitation? And why hold a private luncheon for insiders in the first place? Isn't this supposed to be a public school?

BCS motives are as clear as day. They know they can't win in a court of law so are putting on this PR stunt to try to win in the court of public opinion. LASD should absolutely give them nothing more than what is in the preliminary offer.
