Good overview about how money behind the scenes is moving the Charter School Business Plan forward and how much the jackpot is if they win the contracts. The concept of "Public" Charter schools is a deliberate ATEMPT to mislead the citizens.” Public Held” ownership is what we assume "Public Schools" to be. This is not what these would be. They would be and are government "Contracted" schools and would be public in that the public is allowed into them like other public places such as stores, restaurants and bars only our TAX dollars would fuel the owners of the contracts “Charters” and not their own money put at risk.. Changing something from public to private doesn’t make it better it just means the public on longer owns it and they are going to allow someone else “ownership”. Private ownership means the owners are free to do what they want with their property.
We would be using Public Funds and Taxes to promote the private business ofCharterSchoolowners. These would be more like the big military contractors as we are looking at billions of dollars to be taken in these contracts. The equipment and workers in the business would not be public employees and their real bosses would be the owners of the contract whether they are nonprofit or for-profit. The commitment of the workers would be only to the owners and the workers own self-interest as these contracted employers are not prone to loyalty over prosperity of their business. The workers would not be loyal to the public as they would no longer be public employees any more then someone working in a government contract ship yard would be. The business does not have to stay open like a public school. A business can be sold for profit to someone else or closed should they decide it isn't making money or interesting or if the non-profit has other issues that need their attention more. These businesses can also be poorly planned as one state discovered. That state is trying to recover $17,000,000 from a bankruptCharterSchool.
