School Choice is a Civil Right: Charter Schools, Chartering Success

Posted in IRG with tags , , , , on 11/02/2016 by @CincinnatiPR

Press Release – For Immediate Release

National Developer, Charter School Advocate Stu Lichter:

Charter Schools, Chartering Success

For 70 years, public schools have sought to educate, inspire inner-city students. It’s time to open up the competition: enter Public Charter Schools, Educational Alternatives.

‘The inner-city public-school system is a broken-down relic of an apartheid past.’

Lichter: Supporter of “I Can Schools,” a Public Charter School system in Cleveland.

‘We can do better, or we can just let another generation of minority students rot.’

[LOS ANGELES, California ~ Nov. 2, 2016] Seventy years of neglect. Funding deficiencies. A lack of options, and an undercurrent of racism. The ghost of George Wallace is still haunting the American public school system.

This Tuesday, you – me – we, can all do something to change that,” said Stu Lichter, national developer and a Public Charter School advocate.

The benefits are clear when considering the value of a Charter School education, vs. what our policy makers have been doing for decades: more choices, competition is encouraged, and Charter Schools are renowned for developing innovative new ways to teach,” Lichter said.

Lichter, a national developer with multi-million-dollar projects across the U.S., is deeply involved in the Charter School experience, as a supporter of multiple Public Charter Schools. He owns Industrial Realty Group (IRG) of Los Angeles and is the spearhead for projects such as the new Goodyear USA headquarters in Akron, and the new $500 million Pro Football Hall of Fame redevelopment in Canton.

Lichter also produced a video, “School Choice Is A Civil Right,” which he is offering to media outlets.

We can do better, or we can just let another generation of minority students rot,” Lichter said.

There’s a reason why Charter Schools are becoming so popular, and that’s because they outperform public schools for less money.”

Lichter listed several other attractive options, such as: smaller class size, distance learning opportunities, curriculum flexibility and a “specialty” education.

Elio Motors introduced over 20 key suppliers including Altair Engineering, IAV, NEWTECH 3, and Comau as key suppliers of their brand new, American-made vehicle yesterday at the Troy, Michigan headquarters of Altair.

A prototype of the three-wheel vehicle was revealed by Paul Elio right after announcing the suppliers.

Founder and CEO of Elio Motors Paul Elio and Ken Way, Elio Motors Board Member and former Chairman and CEO of Lear Corporation led the announcement with words from engineering services firm Altair, engine design partner IAV, circuit board and harness manufacturer NEWTECH 3, and advanced manufacturing services firm Comau.

We are honored by the strength and quality of the suppliers that this project has attracted. Their enthusiasm and active participation in the design process ensures Elio Motors success as we move into the future,” Paul Elio said of the Elio Motors supplier partners.

The Elio Motors new prototype showcases a three-wheeled vehicle design that can achieve 84MPG with an anticipated 5-star safety rating, all starting at $6,800.

The prototype was revealed to the public yesterday morning, marking the start of a tour where the vehicle will travel from Troy to Shreveport, LA, then onto St. Louis and Kansas City, with stops in additional markets to be added.

Elio continued, “We are excited to have the new prototype available and are looking forward to sharing the design changes with our future customers in the coming months.”

The vehicle will be produced in Shreveport, Louisiana, in a plant that GM previously used for assembly.

The vehicle is scheduled for production in the summer of 2014 and reservations are being accepted now. Potential owners can reserve vehicles for as little as $100. Reservations allow potential owners a spot on the delivery list in the first year in production depending on their reservation level, access to the Elio Motors e-newsletter, a bumper sticker, and a limited edition t-shirt.
