A few weeks before the start of the school year, the city of Indianapolis closed down a charter school called The Project School because of low test scores.
That didn't leave parents much time to find a new place to send their children this year . . . so they decided to start their OWN school. It's called Project Libertas.
Four parents of Project School students were licensed teachers . . . and they taught kindergarten through eighth grade this year. The parents rented out a youth center to hold classes.
And to save money, parents volunteered as teachers' aides . . . cafeteria workers . . . and janitors. The school just received state accreditation, which means they'll get state funding next year.
