A state investigations alleged that Chaney & Harris, co-founders of Epic Charter Schools the state’s largest virtual charter school system, embezzled $10 million, based on “ghost students” who never enrolled, & “created a system of financial gain at Epic, devising a scheme using their positions as public officers to unlawfully derive profits from state appropriated funds.” The mendacity is amazing. H ow many students actually show up to Epic Charter School on-site locations. If 7,000 are showing up to two sites at any one period of time you have to make sure you have proper facilities for them. 'They even say at all these sites they have a 99% attendance rate. Which is absolutely amazing as a 38-year teacher -- you cannot get 99% of your kids there at a school each day.
