Oklahoma’s Epic Charter Schools seems to be as creative in fraud as Ohio’s ECOT
Epic gave the State Superintendent $23,000 in campaign donations. The Education Department did not investigate Epic’s fraudulent practices.
Epic had ghost students. Epic paid $800-$1000 to each student who didn’t enroll in a public school. One family with 10 children received $8000 and then withdrew the children from Epic.
The bottom line is that unregulated, for-profit online charters are prone to corruption. When will public officials acknowledge that online charters are a public policy mistake?
