Charter scandals common throughout the nation

October 10, 2018



Charters were created in a political whirlwind to improve academic achievement without addressing the educational needs of students, particularly those living in poverty. The notion that charters would reduce overall spending for public education also appealed to some state officials.


Hence policymakers and governors established a parasitic array of charter schools that is largely void of transparency and accountability. This deregulated, political campaign-driven enterprise was doomed to fall into the cesspool of corruption.


The solution to charter corruption is to apply the same rules and standards to all schools that receive public funds or to end the failed charter experiment altogether.


"The whole people must take upon themselves the education of the whole people and be willing to bear the expenses of it. There should not be a district of one mile square, without a school in it, not founded by a charitable individual, but maintained at the public expense of the people themselves."

- John Adams, September 10, 1785
