”Lawless” is the word that teachers use most often to describe the school. Read the story. Then ask yourself, why do Alabama state leaders want to inflict this disruption and chaos on children?

LEAD Academy, Montgomery’s 1st charter school, has been a chaotic mess since it opened less than six weeks ago, with staffing shortages leaving more than 70 students crammed into one class, teachers without necessary supplies, extensive discipline issues & an ongoing fight between staff and the LEAD board over a strange contract that faculty members are being forced to sign several weeks after school has started, according to numerous LEAD teachers and employees."
