An investigation of the school revealed poor communication, a non-workable transportation plan, inadequate board oversight, poor administration of exceptional education, failure to meet accepted standards of fiscal management & accounting practices, failure to administer required state assessments, failure to pay teachers, etc. The school misappropriated funds to the tune of $149k and failed to pay food services ($35k), gas charges ($14k), bus leases (over $23k) and employee benefits ($200k). It also failed to reconcile Charter Startup Program Grant funds totaling $81k. It collapsed nearly $500k in debt, leaving the district, teachers and vendors holding the bag. Guess who paid? Us- the taxpayers (not once, but twice)."

    Fine let the Tennessee kids languish in make-believe schools and be taught all the unicorn shit about the world and stay dumb and the rest of our kids in blue states will keep on winning.

    The lack of data on charter schools is, low-key, one of the bigger tragedies of the (American) 21st century.
