Ohio’s For-Profit “White Hat Charter Schools” are nearing one billion in revenue from the state. These immoral TEApublicans will stop at nothing to make profit, whether on the sick and dying as in healthcare, or by putting our children’s education and future at risk with charter schools. David Brennan and his White Hat Management company run schools so poorly that they were sued by 10 of its own charter schools.
“The suit charges that White Hat lobbied the state legislature for changes to the charter school law in 2006 that made it possible for White Hat to fire any school board that tries to sever ties with the management company.
Nor is it financially feasible for a charter school to switch operators because White Hat’s contracts state that it owns the school’s property, furniture and equipment — even though they were all paid for with tax dollars, according to the complaint.
Essentially, White Hat created an educational model where tax dollars flow to the private corporation with little room for oversight or control by the schools’ governing bodies,” said a news release accompanying the filing of the lawsuit.”
