Cashing In On Kids – Cyber Charters

Note, this resource came across my radar screen over the past few days.

Cashing In On Kidshttp://cashinginonkids.com/

 It is a resource put together by the American Federation of Teachers, designed to:

conducts research and public education programs designed to help ensure that public schools put the students’ interest above corporate interests that are increasingly taking control of public education policy and institutions. Six critical elements are necessary to meet this goal: transparency, accountability, quality, oversight, equity and public control. This website includes examples of charter schools, many of them run by for-profit companies, that lack these critical elements and, as a result, do a poor job of serving students and taxpayers.

I did note that they have a Cyber Charters page that focuses primarily on K12, Inc..  Check them out as it is quite enlightening, and based largely on the work of journalists and independent researchers.
