Lawmakers Say “scrap School”
California lawmakers are scraping to fill a $23.6 billion budget hole and some are suggesting starting by killing a pet project of the governor. The Turning Point Academy reform school in San Luis Obispo is a military-style reform school intended for teen-agers caught bringing guns to school. Davis has spent $12-million to develop it, and it costs $3-million a year to operate. But the halls, dorms and classrooms are mostly vacant, with only 25 students enrolled so far.
