This was something I didn’t know a lot about, but apparently VP Biden’s brother, Frank, is selling or sold a set of Maverick charter schools in Florida, plagued by a few scandals and questionable hires. You can easily Google about this and draw some of your own conclusions, here’s a couple of helpful sources here and here.
Apparently they’re on a mission from God, or something. Actually, here’s another good one.
And, I’m not into the whole testing thing, but if we are to use their own metric, their FCAT scores are abysmal. Actually, there’s several locations now (I’m just getting updated on this). They all fare poorly. Other than political connections, how on Earth could such a crappy model EXPAND rather than CONTRACT into nothingness?
Here’s a review:
Unsatisfactory. Parents beware. This charter school does not care about the students and their education. Students are not getting what they are promised. Promises fast graduation, but school does not even give a real, normal high school diploma, but from out of the state, online. A few good teachers. Poor leadership. Principal seems very disorganized and inexperienced. High turnover of staff and teachers and students just within first year opening of school. My child is much better off in now in other school.
Wow, what a freaking mess. Any thoughts on this one?
