ACTION United, along with the Center for Popular Democracy and Integrity in Education, released a report on October 1st calling for all those with responsbility for monitoring charters, including the charter schools themselves, to get serious about charter school fraud. The report documents the 30 million dollars of known fraud and calls for forensic adudits in order to correct the problem. ACTION United, along with PCAPS, will be developing a campaign around this issue, including passage of legislation, in the coming months.
The report was announced at press conference and rally outside the Governor’s office. When demonstrators learned that Corbett was up the street a the Union League, they made an effort to deliver a copy of the report to him, but, as usual, the Governor was unwlling to meet with his constituents.
