OK, so maybe designing a PlayStation and Xbox curriculum isn’t the best move for a charter high school.
Concerned plans for the curriculum at the schools was lacking, the Broward School Board this week denied an application to open three charter schools -- bearing the name of Heat guard Dwyane Wade -- designed for dropouts.
That’s despite several pleas that the unconventional plans for the Mavericks High D. Wade’s Schools, which would be run by private management company Mavericks in Education, might be just the ticket to help distracted students. A charter school is a public school that receives state funding, but is free of most state regulations.
But I’m wondering if it wasn’t the school’s name that was the problem: Mavericks High.
Are you kidding me?
The Heat beat the Dallas Mavericks to win the 2006 NBA Championship.
