So what are you looking at there?

Notice how only three of the city’s charter schools are owned by the charter school? 29 are leased and many of those are leased to a sister entity, a company run by the same people who run the charter school.

This entire fight is to get more money into the pocket’s of charter operators.

Friends Lenny Curry and the city council, could not possibly care less about children.
