Below are the PECO (maintenance and construction) allocations from the state for the 18-19 school year to the districts charter schools.
I didn’t go through everyone one of them to see if they were for profit or not, but the Charter Schools USA schools are definitely run by a for profit company and they took in a little over 3.1 million dollars in PECO funds. That is public money spent on a for profit companies property. That was also only 7 schools too, while all of Duval’s public schools, all 168 of them, recieved a little over 2.6 million in PECO dollars.
I hope you have let that sink it.
Now DCPS can raise money through millage to pay for maintenance just Tallahassee has severely limited the amount of money it can raise.
Is this what we should be doing? Why is crony capitalism and picking winners and losers only bad if democrats do it?
