Marriage Made in Heaven? Greg Mathis & Sea Islands

If you foolishly lease a building for a charter school that is about to be terminated, what do you do when it is? Apparently, Sea Islands YouthBuild has found the answer--turn it over to another charter school that's having a tough go: Greg Mathis Charter. [Greg Mathis Charter Expands to Include Shuttered Sea Islands YouthBuild .]

Both charters were designed for at-risk students. Greg Mathis has enrolled the remaining Sea Islands students in its school while taking over the Sea Islands-leased building. Greg Mathis's financial picture should improve. The students from Sea Islands will get their chance. Looks like win-win.

Let's hope that the administration at Greg Mathis can get a handle on its previous problems regarding truancy and discipline.
