Some students at Great Hearts charter schools have been posting complaints about the schools on an Instagram page. Many of these concerns have been expressed anonymously.

They range from allegations of racist and homophobic comments to the dress code to concerns about the diversity of the curriculum. And the students are asking the charter school network to make changes to address the current social climate.

Lorraine Longhi and Joshua Bowling have reported this story. Longhi is the Scottsdale reporter for the Arizona Republic, and she joined The Show to talk more about the students' concerns.
