They needed a school, so we were there to help them," said Leroy McClure, the founder of Triple A Academy and a related school, Focus Learning Academy.
In the school's appeal letter, McClure wrote that the arrival of Prime Prep students caused disruptions that kept other students from learning. He described the environment at Triple A last spring as one of anarchy, tension and conflict.
"Anarchy ignited, as students vehemently disrespected and defied the authority of classroom teachers and school district administrators," he wrote.
Some former Prime Prep students openly drank alcohol in classrooms and misbehaved, McClure wrote. When a female instructor asked a student to pull his pants up a bit, he pulled them down. When a male teacher asked a student to button his shirt properly, the student took it off.
When Triple A tried to work with the parents of transfers, school staffers were met with "hostility," McClure wrote.

Mr. McClure's discerning insight revealed to him years previous that reading is the gateway to all other knowledge.He became an avid reader in school after he read countless stories about sports stars, mixing his love of athletics with classroom learning.
As a high school honor graduate, he was also an All-State basketball player in Conway, Arkansas.Moving to Dallas to take classes at RichlandJunior College, he again received special academic honors.He later graduated from MayvilleStateUniversity in North Dakota with a bachelor's of science degree.
Concerned with the high illiteracy and drop out rate of African-Americans, and the experience of watching his brother struggle through school because of Dyslexia.Today, Mr. McClure is the only African-American male in the state of Texas and the United States to hold certification as an academic Language Therapist.In 1993, Mr. McClure created a 501 © 3 non-profit organization focused on children with "learning differences" including Dyslexia, attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, and those "at risk" because they can't read due to other language-based problems.
