Florida’s future, Columbus has 17 charter schools fail in one year
That’s not a misprint. 17 charter schools failed in one city in one year. And I thought 25 for all of Florida in one year was bad. Well friends that’s what happens when a government, like Florida is trying to do makes it easy to start a charter school. You get a lot of bad actors who don’t know what they are doing and children pay the price, well children and tax payers.
It should be very difficult to open a charter school but unfortunately legislators in Tallahassee, many of whom operate or have family members or supporters that do are trying to make it easier.
Columbus is Florida’s future unless we slow down and get things right.
Finally Florida has had over 250 charter schools open and close, about 30 percent of all of them and that should tell you all you need to know about the industry
