What Danehy Said About Charter Schools

Posted By on Thu, Feb 6, 2014 at 10:30 AM

Tom Danehy is on a two week tear writing about charter schools. In an earlier post, I quoted last week's column about charters "spend[ing] public money like drunken sailors with almost no official oversight." Now Tom has put together an Arizona charter school quiz, with good questions and on-the-money answers.

I won't give away the answers, but you'll learn about charter financial corruption, the relative quality of charter and district school education, charter administrative costs, and how to find out what charter teachers are paid.

Also, there's one ridiculous-sounding question with a WTF answer: "True or false: There is a way that a charter-school operator can use taxpayer money to purchase a building, close down the school and then keep the building." Could that possibly be true? Read Tom's column to find out.
