Learn  'how the charter industry in DC organized campaigns to prevent any accountability, & arranged for taxpayers to fund their lobbying efforts, with the help of a few billionaires. It takes money to persuade politicians to vote your way, and the charter industry has figured out how to get the public to foot the bill--a bait & switch tactic! The uninformed believe they are paying for public schools, but they are paying for lobbying for privatization, Their definition of “public education” is deceitful & intentionally misleading. It isn’t fair to public school families & students to slowly eradicate their schools! That’s information they need prior to voting. Any organization that receives public funds should be subject to public oversight. Clearly the charters are private schools that use their powerful friends to get public money. No oversight, no transparency, no public funding.'
