File this one under “I thought I’d seen everything”: a charter school in Michigan, the Grand Traverse Academy, part of a charter chain founded by optometrist Steven Ingersoll who claimed he had developed a new pedagogy based on 'visual learning;' so he gathered a governing board of other optometrists to lead the charter venture. Unfortunately, no one kept close watch on the financial affairs, and Dr. Ingersoll transferred millions of dollars from the schools’ account to his personal bank account. The members of the board were not troubled by this minor oversight, but federal prosecutors were not so understanding. Ingersoll was indicted and convicted. But the saga continues and you need to read this post where Diane concludes: Stuff like this, which seldom are noticed by the mainsteam media, can drive bloggers crazy. Is anyone listening? Does anyone care?
