This is Tammy Welshon with Alpine Valley School (startup) in Colorado

I don't belive ANY of the schools or school groups are intentionally or
knowingly only aiming at the middle-class white group. I think we all do our
best to get our word out and hope that we are heard. We do our best to find
those who believe as we do, regardless of color, religion, sexual orientation
and so on.

Besides, who are we to decide what is best for other groups? Seems to go
against the philosophy of what we stand for.

Thanks for being philosophically correct. I believe you are right on target. This thought
processes you described are indeed those that have mainstream education the bane of
free and wonderful thinking. It seems as though it's extremely difficult to let others be.
