Ohio Gov Kasich compares schools to pepperoni on pizza

Governor Kasich and White Hat Charter School owner David Brennan about their attitudes toward public schools.

Ohio's For-Profit White Hat Charter Schools nearing one billion in revenue from state.

Congratulations are in order to Kasich pal David Brennan and his White Hat Management company for being awarded two more charter schools by the Ohio Department of Education despite the worst list of accomplishments we may have ever seen. And with these additional schools, it is likely that White Hat schools will top $1 billion in revenue in Ohio.



More about their revenues:

School Revenues in Ohio since 1999: $818,919,080.00

1. December last year White Hat mentioned financial problems, too many other charter schools.

Since "choice" and "competition" are the code words for the education reform movement....that is ironic.

"The company that helped launch the charter-school movement in Ohio now faces so much competition that its founder told employees they are “in a fight for our lives.”

White Hat Management must increase enrollment and profit to save jobs, founder David Brennan told employees in a memo last month. He wrote that he has invested more than $50 million in the Akron-based company but can’t put more in.

His subsidies will last White Hat only through June 2013, Brennan said."
