Well there is cheering in many elected officials homes this am for a new way has been found to pay for education.
Well not exactly pay for education but instead a new source for campaign donations thanks to education.
Specifically the educating of Moyer AcademyCharter student’s whose new management team like to make campaign donation’s.
K12 Inc gave all kinds of money to Virginia member’s of the legislature when they were getting a foothold in VA.
Now they’re in Delaware.
I’m willing to bet you will see on the campaign finance report of many Democratic legislator’s a donation from K12. The Jack will lead the list.
To be fair many Republican’s will take a check as well.
The Jack has done it and DSEA has allowed it. He has privatized education. DSEA has allowed it because this is the way to get charter schools under very comprehensive state control. With DOE now controlling the Moyer contract the Moyer school board has zero say in what happens. Zero.
For the record a group went to DOE asking to run Moyer. They are credentialed and experienced. They basically sat in the lobby. Oh, they never made campaign donation’s to VA legislator’s. Did this lack of a track record hurt them? One really does have to wonder.
And with Rodel now running the DOE charter school office there also is zero autonomy and with a former Rodel board chairman now serving as a voting member of the DOE charter school committee should we look for all charter’s who are on academic review or watch to be taken over byK12 within the next few years?
Oh, the Rodel top brass all gave contributions to The Jack.
Who would have ever thought education paid so well.
