D.C. Charter School Pay Scam

Oct 28, 2013

The former CEO of Options Public Charter School in Washington, D.C. was paid $425,000 for one year managing this school of about 400 students. That’s $150,000 more than the base salary of the chancellor for all D.C. public schools; more than twice what the D.C. mayor earns; more than what the president of the United States earns.

Options Public Charter School is a cash cow! That’s the point of the movement to set up charter schools!
