Community High

Ann Arbor has a hip alternative high school, access to which is allocated by lottery, as described in this piece in the (renamed back to the old name) Ann Arbor News.

Seems to me that the school district might raise some funds (they are forever whining about not having enough even though they are in the far upper reaches of the per-pupil spending distribution in Michigan) by setting the price at the market clearing level, at least for high income parents, instead of handing out the scarce (and apparently highly desirable) good for free.

Is it out of the question for Community High School to select applicants based on merit? Yes, a loaded word, but I'm just wondering.
