Obviously The Problem Is That We Overpay Teachers

Or maybe it's that Charter Schools have an unlimited License to Grift.
But Education Department spokesman Timothy Eller said the state had no choice. According to the 1997 state charter law and several recent Commonwealth Court decisions, the department has a "mandatory duty" to pay charter bills - regardless of the reason for the dispute, Eller said.


The situation was especially galling because district officials believe they had already overpaid Solomon by more than $437,000, Gallard said. He said advance payments the district sent to the charter in July and August had included tuition for the elementary students. As a result, Solomon has received nearly $750,000 in district funds for elementary students it was not authorized to have.
