LATEST SENATOR BROWN
U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) applauded the Ohio Department of Education’s decision to limit its use of grant money for charter schools, saying it is a sign that strong oversight of failed for-profit charter operators is beginning to work. Still the Senator is outraged that Ohio students are missing out on this investment because of bad actors.
“There’s no question that limiting this grant is the responsible thing to do to protect taxpayers from having even more of their hard-earned money squandered away,” said Brown. “But it’s shameful that Ohio students have to miss out on the full investment because of fraudulent data and shady charter operators that cannot be trusted. When it comes down to it, fraudulent for-profit operators stole from Ohio taxpayers and they stole from our students.”
