Homestead council: City has too many schools
Miami Herald | News
The Homestead City Council recently approved plans for a new K-3 charter school in the city. But if council members get their way, it’ll be the last one for a while.
Council members joked last month on the dais about how many charter schools the city had within its borders – Vice Mayor Stephen Shelley posted a trivia question on his Facebook page testing friends and followers on the exact number.
The number is 14.
“They are proliferating everywhere,” Shelley said.
“At some point in time, I’m going to have a charter school on every block,” said Councilman Jimmy Williams.
