After Feeding at the Trough After Katrina, It’s No Surprise that Charters Are Ca$hing in on Covid

In the Public Interest is full of articles describing how Charter School profiteers are using the Covid closures to rake in money and seize the opportunity they are presented. This edition offered:

  • an article highlighting 11 warning signs that profiteers are moving into your district,
  • a link to Cashing in on Kids articles describing how the Koch Brothers are promoting articles on The Future of Education that (surprise surprise) see privatization on the horizon;
  • an article that helps readers identify privatization schemes emerging in their community
  • an article describing how charter schools are “cozying up” to the Trump administration— not exactly NEWS but chilling given the opportunity to use the Covid crisis to leverage profits; and
  • a tranche of articles on how profiteers are using Facebook at other venues to lure parents to use their products.
