Even as study after study shows that charter schools don’t make for better education, Detroit Public Schools Emergency Manager Roy Roberts has plans to turn as many as 45 additional Detroit public schools into charter schools. And he appointed a new director of the school district’s charter school office, overseeing all charters in the district.

Who is it? Doug Ross–founder of New Urban Learning, a charter school company that runs several charter schools in Detroit.

Wonder which company Ross will give those 45 schools to?

Can somebody say cha-ching? Doug Ross hears cash registers ringing!
