MUST READ! 'This report,  details the Network for Public Education’s two month examination of the U.S. Department of Education’s Charter Schools Program (CSP).  The report found that nearly $1 billion had been wasted in the past 25 years on charter schools that never opened or closed soon after opening. Our investigation found a troubling pattern of insufficient applicant review, contradictions between information provided by applicants and available public data, the gifting of funds to schools with inadequate financial and governance plans, a push-out of large grants to the states with little supervision by the department, and the waste of hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars.The article is a condensation of one that Jeff wrote in “The Progressive.”

Charter schools are what happens when there is not a shred of accountability for the grand theft of taxpayer money.

Did you know that Some 31% of charter schools authorized by the state of California, between Jan. 2002 and May 2018 are no longer open.

Would you put more money into a failing business? If you were in charge of the charter industry, the answer is yes.The charter industry in Ohio is lobbying for a 22% increase in tuition,even though 2/3 of the state's charter schools are rated either D or F.If they were public schools, most would have been closed by now.

Did you realize that In Utah "plenty of legislators are cashing in on charter schools/" State Sen. Lincoln Fillmore (Dist. 10) is one of the foremost experts on charter schools in the state legislature. That makes sense given that he runs Charter Solutions, a company that from 2015 to 2018 has collected $5.7 million in fees from charter schools.

That is taxpayer money given to those charter schools. As many as 23 different charter schools have hired Fillmore's company to help them administer their curriculum and take care of back office activities like payroll and human resources.

Fillmore says although he does field questions from lawmakers regarding charter schools, he never sponsors legislation that affects them.

. Read about California: Waste, Fraud, and Abuse in the Charter Sector This is so easily accomplished. You see, there are almost SIXTEEN THOUSAND separate school systems in FIFTY states, and most folks I meet do not know what is afoot in the district next door, let alone the schools in their own districts!" Here is a link to my series at OEN Maligned in the media as 'failing,' so many school systems are ripe for conquering with 'policies' issued by legislatures, with not an educator on board

The charter operator gets a free ride for failing. Only the taxpayers and students lose.Why is it easy to close a public school but hard to close a charter school? One guess: charter lobbyists wrote the state law. This is an unbelievable story about what it takes to shut down a failing charter in Pennsylvania. The public must pay the cost of challenging the charter and pay the cost of defending the charter.
