Detroit Free Press Investigation: Michigan Charters Get Poor Results, Have No Accountability
June 23, 2014
After a year-long investigation, the Detroit Free Press published a scathing report on the state’s thriving charter sector.
Charter schools receive $1 billion in taxpayer funding with virtually no accountability.
They get worse results than traditional public schools.
140,000 children attend charter schools in Michigan.
Michigan has more for-profit charters than any other state. The for-profit organizations are secretive about their finances because they are private.
