Opinion: Charter school management full of schemers and scams. Kentucky should avoid them.

Entrepreneurship is fine in its place, I just don’t think public tax dollars should be its funding base, especially not when they’re supposed to be used to educate our children. Charter school results from around the country are mixed at best, and the scandals just keep coming. If and when the Kentucky General Assembly gets around to figuring out a funding formula, they should shut any loopholes on for profit management companies. Our schools have plenty of problems but suctioning off our funding to folks trying to make a buck is not going to help solve them.
