Charter schools get money from the public but then they have no oversight as to what they have to do with it. They can spend the money on whatever they want including extravagant principal salaries. Furthermore because there is no oversight there is no way to tell how many charter schools are doing so.
It gets worse. Despite the fact there are some great charter schools, they disproportionately make up the states failing schools. If you went to a charter last year you were 759% more likely to be attending a failing school than if you went to a public school.
Why do we have them again? Why are we rushing to get more? And who is benefitting because it is certainly not our children.
