The Numbers Don’t Lie

Well, lookie here! Even though Alma del Mar has been under attack by a powerful, well-funded union campaign machine for months on end — parents in New Bedford are still signing up for the chance to get a seat in droves:

Alma del Mar Charter School held their enrollment lottery Wednesday night with more than 100 hopeful family, friends and children in attendance. The lottery, held for the 2019-2020 school year, attracted 748 applications – a 35 percent increase over last year’s application cycle.

Alma del Mar received 198 applications for 45 available seats for next year’s kindergarten cohort. The school also received 550 applications for grades 1-8, where there are currently no openings.

I mean, what’s WRONG with these parents? Why aren’t they listening to New Bedford City Councilor Hugh Dunn (D-MTA)?

He’s been canvassing the local neighborhood begging people not to support Alma del Mar!

Looks like you might need to work on the rap you’re using on the doors, Hugh.

Parents in New Bedford don’t seem to be buying what you’re selling.
