The Grift Is The Point

One of my least favorite local commentators (can't find original column due to linkrot) was on the NPR talking about how charter schools are super awesome in theory but we've messed them up in practice, in part because of lax oversight

I just don't get how people fail to see that the grift is the point. Not that every local charter school is run by grifters, but the state set the framework up precisely to enable grifters. It's the point.
