Dayton has the second highest number of charter-school students in the nation: nearly 6,500, or 28 percent of the district.
The exodus of students cost the district an estimated $43 million in lost state aid during the 2005-06 school year. Since 2000, $189 million has followed students leaving Dayton schools for charters.
Anyone know how much of that goes to David Brennan and White Hat Management charter schools? Well, okay – how about how much of our tax dollars go right back to the politicians that Brennan and White Hat support?
Rod Coker probably knows, but he’s not telling. Or, he’s telling us he doesn’t know, and then, he’s telling us he knows – but he’s not telling.
That White Hat Life Skills Center Coker oversees must have a class called, How to Lie with a Straight Face. Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez obviously didn’t do as well as Coker.
