From The Sacramento Bee: Sacramento County, Calif., schools for troubled students will remain open next year, but they will be only half full. County Office of Education officials had considered shuttering the community schools because of a shortage of funding, but they were able to get commitments from local school districts to keep them open. The students at the schools – many with criminal backgrounds – would have been returned to their home school districts. But the districts agreed to pay $425 per student and to commit to sending 200 students to the schools. Last year enrollment at the community schools totaled 393.
