Why I heart charter schools

Because they’re such an efficient use of taxpayer dollars:

A charter school mogul was charged today in a multimillion-dollar fraud case by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Dorothy June Hairston Brown, who received accolades for students’ test scores and gained notoriety for collecting large salaries and suing parents who questioned her actions, was indicted on multiple counts of wire fraud, obstruction of justice, and witness tampering.

Brown, 75, and four executives from her charter schools, were charged with defrauding three charter schools of more than $6.5 million in taxpayer funds.

U.S. Attorney Zane David Memeger announced that a federal grand jury had returned a 62-count indictment against Brown and four of her trusted employees.

Quote of the day

Stephanie Davies, who was in the Aurora movie theater and whose friend was shot:

“It’s sad for me to know that people go through so much in their life,” said Young, “that they would want to hurt, to massacre people. I feel so sorry for him, I feel so sorry.”

I would love to meet that young woman’s parents, because they did a wonderful job of raising a compassionate human being.
