The three La Paloma Academy Charter Schools are the absolute WORST schools (charter or otherwise) in Arizona!! Their academic programs are ineffectual for most students and sub-standard; the vast majority of the administrative faculty members are not qualified to hold their positions; there are no cultural/artistic programs; the facilities are dangerous because of the open access to them; and the level of parental involvement is not very high. The few highly-qualified, concerned educators/faculty members were not appreciated, and they moved on. Ms. Janes has her family members and friends she can control on the payroll, at the expense of educational materials and qualified faculty. These schools should be thoroughly investigated and closed down! As a tax-payer, I resent my tax money being spent to line the pockets of the Janes family.
