O.M.G. What the hell is wrong with these people? State Rep. Josh Mandel, I am begging you to please, please, please reconsider all the support you get from these folks.
Here’s the deal:
As I posted yesterday, the White Hat Management rep on WCPN’s Sound of Ideas yesterday said that he didn’t know how much profit White Hat made on its for-profit schools, nor did he know how much was spent on operations.
Well, on today’s Sound of Ideas, which you can listen to here, Dan Moulthrop tells listeners that after the show went off the air, Mr. Rod Coker informed Dan that he, Rod Coker, knows exactly how much is made and goes into operations, but that White Hat doesn’t disclose that information.
Hello – calling Eye on the Statehouse? And Mr. Hansen – head of the Buckeye Institute – who says he wants to dump the Ohio Department of Education? You support liars like White Hat’s Rod Coker? Those are the types of people you want to entrust my tax dollars to, for educating my kids? Over my extremely cold, dead body, Mr. Hansen.
Why the hell didn’t this man just say what he knew on the air? Because he knows how indefensible it is that White Hat “doesn’t disclose” their numbers. Total, complete BS. He’s under orders to sound like a complete nincompoop rather than give up the holy grail of how much White Hat makes and gives to politicians?
I am IRATE.
Call me a blogger. Call me anything you want that you think will hurt me – but I do not lie on the broadcast of a public service news show about EDUCATION.
What an effing insult to Ohioans.
David Brennan should, at the very least, fire this man.
Man I am angry!
Can you believe me, Ms. Write Whomever You Can Whenever You Can forgot to include email addresses for White Hat!? What an oversight:
Here are two addresses to write to and describe your dismay, disgust and distaste for entities that allow spokespeople – and employees of the entity – to lie to listeners of a radio show about education:
