Horizon Middle: Must Not Be Friends of Joe

One private school gets the City of Charleston to buy and lease land for it to the tune of almost $5 million. At the same time a public charter school on Johns Island in Charleston County [see Organizers Work to Realize Dream of Opening School] can't find enough money to start up operations next fall:
"Finding a building is often the biggest hurdle facing start-up charter schools, and that held true with Horizon Middle. School leaders finally identified and bought the land on which they hope to build a school, but they still need about $1 million to cover the construction costs."
Is this a crazy system, or what?
