Teacher Voice – Friday Five – Episode 14

DENIED
Clearly this is NOT an HCPS for-profit charter school application

On the heels of another four charter schools being approved this past Tuesday, and as a rebuttal to the trope the school board members constantly offer the public, I recorded this brief rant on the massive proliferation of for-profit charter operators in Hillsborough County Public Schools.

If you are a concerned citizen and taxpayer, please listen and share.

For those of you who are interested in the Pinellas story I reference, please click the link.

Curious about what the Marion county superintendent had to say about for-profit charters?

And you know that ribbon-cutting ceremony for SLAM that Susan Valdes attended and then later approved two new SLAM schools? The management company, Academica, and its CEO, each contributed $1,000 to her reelection campaign last year on that May 25th date I mention in the podcast.

Want to know who else is getting paid what by any of these for-profit charter operators? Visit here.

Thanks for listening, everyone. Have an awesome weekend!

P.S. – Pat Hall, if you ever happen to see/listen to this podcast, I’d love to interview you so we can have a more robust conversation about this situation!
