|Definite divide: ICEF Vista students coned off from the rest of campus|
ICEF parents, who wouldn't send their children to Stoner ES because Stoner is the school across the street from the projects, are more then happy to send their children to the same campus under the guise of a charter school.
It is sad to see the parents, who were at Stoner a year or two ago and wouldn't even donate 10 minutes of their time to improve Stoner, switch over to ICEF where they are willing to sign an agreement to provide 40 hours of free work to the charter or if they can't work for 40 hours, they can pay for the volunteer time by "donating" supplies.
This divide is not lost on the children. The children can see the separate and unequal conditions on campus and disturbed by what they are living through.
Many in the community are call the co-location a new segregation with separate and unequal conditions for students on the same campus.
