This is an example of a lower-cost, locally grown and developed STEM program that, if done for 10 full weeks in the summer, might actually help the Economically Disadvantaged kids who can't ever go to $900 a week programming class.

Where is the money? 20% Supplemental Grant money is suppose to be allocated for programs to Supplement, not supplant, spending needed for Target students. (LCFF, LCAP Regulations).

If you are "a suburban liberal" parent, who does not not think this class of child resident should get extra help (costing $$)- SUCK IT UP. Git your state legislator/legislature/California Board of Education to defund the LCFF program, and it's Supplementary and Concentration Grant mechanisms.
