The Network for Public Education reports on a major investigation of charter schools that double dipped into federal funding for coronavirus relief. First the charters received public funding from the $13.2 billion allocated to public schools as part of the CARES Act. Then, on the advice of charter school lobbyists, many applied for funding from the $660 billion Paycheck Protection Program, for which public schools were not eligible. Charters enroll 6% of the nation’s students.Well-funded charters with ample funding were applying for and receiving large PPP awards. As to the funding supplied to charter schools, we suggest that as states distribute the next round of funding to schools, that allocations to charter schools that received PPP be reduced by the amount they received and be redistributed equitably to all schools, both public and charter.'  Read the details, so informative.
