Goethe charter asked to expand into a middle school and take over public school classes at Marina Del Rey Middle school in Los Angeles. Poor kids from African american and hispanic families are declined by charters because of low test scores. Goethe have just about 90% white student body as compared to 90% minorities who attend Marina middle School. Did the supreme court ever ruled that separate is not equal

How many kids have been 'expelled' or 'counseled out' of Goethe? Very few kids leave the school (I know of one, and they were white), and there have been zero expulsions.

How many kids have been 'expelled' or 'counseled out' of Goethe? No, I don't know either, but for expulsions, it's zero.

Charter schools cannot exclude anyone for any reason. Entry is by lottery - anyone in California can apply for their children to go to the school, and anyone can go to watch the lottery being drawn to ensure that it is fair.
