The interest has to be there first.

Thank you for your inquiry. Due to our small size, Truebright does not have sufficient demand to warrant the creation of a girls basketball team. However, we have a partnership with a school that does offer girls basketball, and some of our female students do play.

There is no stability there, no leadership and the school is setting up the students for failure. You could not pay me to send my child there.

Turkish people as opposed to Turkish teachers. They put in Turks who kickback part of their paycheck to their leader. Just one more charter taking public school funds for their own private agenda.
