Much of this money will go to for-profit chains like Charter Schools USA or Mavericks, for profit friends and the profits have been good. Why are we giving money to for profit companies and I want to remind you that nobody is forced to create a charter school. I doubt many of these charter schools would throw up their hands and go away if they didn’t get this give away.
If a charter school is a legitimate non-profit and there are some then that is a different story but unfortunately to more are more concerned about their bottom lines which the governor through this give away is about to make a lot more lucrative.
At the same time charter schools are getting these construction and maintenance funds public schools of which there is over 3,000 have seen their piece of the pie reduced to nothing but crumbs.
We should all be outraged by this.
