This Ohio blogger reports that Michelle Rhee is now advising the anti-public school administration of Governor John Kasich and the Republican legislature about how to fund education.
Given the predisposition of the leadership in Ohio, the outcome is predictable and it won’t be good for public education.
Ohio has a flourishing landscape of charters and a growing voucher program.
The charter landscape is very profitable for certain big-time charter operators, but charters do not outperform public schools. Many get very low scores.
The online charters are immensely profitable for their owners, but do as poorly for their students as online charters in other states.
