Imagine that this new manager–with unprecedented power to determine the future of the district–has worked as a consultant to the big charter school in the district.
Imagine that the district pays one-third of its budget to that same charter school.
Imagine that the very wealthy owner of the charter school collects $16 million a year in “management fees” from the charter school budget.
Imagine that this same businessman who owns the charter and collects $16 million a year is also the single biggest contributor to the governor.
What, you can’t imagine such a thing could happen?
Neither could I.
It’s too improbable, too outrageous.
Why the national press would be all over this story, wouldn’t they?
