Will the charter industry clean up its own act or is public corruption now woven into its fabric? Here is the pay-to-play corruption in charter school across states. Florida charter owners and employees and family members are elected legislators who shamelessly vote to enrich themselves. Ohio charter owners contribute to legislators who then shower their benefactors with riches. In N.Y. Gov. Cuomo accepts millions from billionaires who love entrepreneurial schools and hate public schools! Arizona charter schools routinely receive exemptions from state oversight requirements, despite a history of misusing tax dollars. They also receive over 25% of state education funds, BUT enroll 15% of school age students. In too many states, the public officials who should enforce the law are charter operators or receive millions from charter operators.
