Re: “Too Hot for School?

I have mixed feelings about American Indian Public Charter School, two of my sons and a niece attended. My oldest son survived, while my niece thrived and is entering her last year of Medical school with an overall 4.0 GPA. My youngest son was ridiculed, degraded and received an unacceptable punishment so, I removed him from the school. Now that my youngest son has graduated from high school, I know for a fact, he would have been a more productive and confident student had I made him complete Ben's program.

There were many things I did not like about the school, location, Ben's intimidation tactic enforced upon student/teachers/parent, his racists comments, etc., but there were many things I loved about the school. AIPCS's Students cover every chapter in each textbook ,unlike many public schools and completing homework is mandatory. The school's rich academic culture is the reason why the test scores are so high. Do I think Ben is crazy? Yes, but I will say this – many students thrive in that environment! The children respect his passion and opening them up to academic greatness.
