“293 Ohio charter schools were awarded grants through the U.S. Dep't  of Ed’s Charter Schools Program (CSP)  from money that the U.S. Dep't of Ed gave to the states between 2006-2014.  At this time, at least 117 (40%) of those (Ohio) charter schools were closed or never opened at all.”  20 of the Ohio charter schools on the list never opened; ninety-seven of the Ohio charter schools receiving CSP grants opened but subsequently shut down. I suspect that hardly anybody in Ohio has heard of the 20 schools that received CSP funding but never opened. I list their names! The federal CSP awards public funding to private operators—individuals and companies—to run schools in competition with the traditional public schools. One primary problem with the CSP  is that oversight is lacking to protect the rights of the students and to protect the stewardship of tax dollars.'

Bombshell Report: Congress Wastes Nearly $1 Billion on Defunct Charter Schools

...and with 15,880 systems in 50 sates the grand theft of public money going into private pockets for fraudulent schools is UNKNOWN TO everyone I meet!

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.Here are a few of my links to other states that give our money away: Betsy DeVos and Payday for the Charter Industry!

Oklahoma: Virtual Charter School is an EPIC Failure

Public education will disappear in America unless we the people demand the funding be restored, and transparency restored.
