Hidden Agenda Part 2
San Jose Planning Commission questions Rocketship on their hidden agenda materials
We wonder, what is Rocketship trying to hide? We offer 7 things that Rocketship doesn’t want you to know.
1. Maybe they don’t want us to know their REAL student to teacher ratio.
2. Or maybe they don’t want us to know about their mediocre English performance, with 0 out of 5 existing schools meeting their performance targets.
3. Or maybe they don’t want us to know that they are running out of money, due to their excessive growth plans.
4. Or maybe they don’t want us to know that their teachers are unhappy, and leaving at an unprecedented rate due to the roll-out of the flexible model.
5. Or maybe they don’t want us to know that they are paying a 10% investment return on bonds used to finance property purchases, making hedge fund investors very wealthy. http://www.alternet.org/education/who-profiting-charters-big-bucks-behind-charter-school-secrecy-financial-scandal-and
6. Maybe they don’t want us to know that they’re using exorbitant management fees charged to each school to fund future growth.
