Atlantic Education Partners, a private, for-profit firm based in Florida, has withdrawn its proposal to operate a dropout recovery program for Santa Fe Public Schools.

The company sent a letter to Superintendent Joel Boyd on Monday stating that delays in signing the contract for starting the Engage Santa Fe program are “less than optimal … we believe that the very real time constraints now confronting us would seriously impair the programmatic design of our work.”

    "being that Atlantic Education Partners would profit from the program, even if it did not cost the district a cent." No, the Santa Fe Four wouldn't be paying a cent, but the Santa Fe HOMEOWNERS would be paying millions!

    What was the price of those I-Pads? $55 million and counting!

    There is another article in today's SF New Mexican, "New Mexico 20th in education spending." That's before the estimated $55 million influx to Santa Fe schools. The same article reiterates that we're #20 and still at the bottom. It's not the money.
