From Scathing Purple Musings

It was reported here Sunday, that Imagine Schools CEO Dennis Bakke operates the failing and financially challenged charter school in West Melbourne. It seems thats not the only failing school Bakke runs. There are two other F schools - both in North Lauderdale.

Bakke was on Rick Scott’s education transition team and likely played a role in establishing a legislative agenda which would be friendly to charters. One piece of legislation now allows charter school operators to go over the head of local school boards to the state when they are rejected. One such action is taking place now in Seminole County. KIPP has already signaled they will be doing the same if they are rejected in Jacksonville.
