Mt. Pleasant will definitely take them. Charleston County would love to have Daniel Island and would bend over backwards to satisfy them on the school issue. You are crazy if you think any different.
They go to Hanahan High School now, which last time I checked is across the Don Holt. You sound like a bitter man. Try to let some of your anger issues go, and you'll probably live longer.
You have completely missed the point. This situation isn't at all about fairness. Daniel Island residents have for years been content to pay more in taxes than their neighbors in Charleston County. Most have been fine with the fact that they provide 20% of the overall tax revenue for Berkeley County without receiving 20% of the benefit. Your claim that somehow DI residents think they deserve more than they are getting is ridiculous. What they think they deserve is what they were promised when they voted overwhelmingly in favor of the school bond referendum. It turns out Berkeley County officials, acting in bad faith, promised Daniel Island a middle school option on Daniel Island if residents supported the measure. They never had any intention of honoring that promise. That intentional deception is why Daniel Island is looking at alternatives. I think your schoolyard analogy is misplaced. This isn't a juvenile response to not getting what's 'fair'. This is a good example of DI residents saying "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me". They don't want to give Berkeley County another chance to deceive them, especially when they have to pay more in taxes for the priviledge of being lied to by their own elected representatives.
