I would think that the Holy Cross is stretched to its limits at the moment.
Sometimes the private schools are simply in a more convenient location for the parents, or other siblings are already enrolled. Maybe the students have been attending for a few years and the parents would like to keep some consistency in their kids lives.
Isla Bonita is a great school, good teachers, good values are taught, nice facilities.
The Island Academy also has a scholarship program.
Is it right to think that poor kids should go to free schools - and kids whose parents have money should go to private schools and not have to attend these schools alongside poor kids?
Kids attending La Isla Bonita are requesting scholarship funding - you don't have to give to this cause if you don't want to, but I don't think it is fair to try and disuade others just because there are other charities vying for donation dollars.
Nothing personal Ernie - I'm sure you know that.
