Eleven people connected to online charter schools are indicted

"A3 Education and the businesses affiliated with McManus and Schrock together have invoiced at least $83.3 million from the 13 charter schools, according to the indictment.

From the affiliated businesses, at least $8.18 million went into personal bank accounts, some in Australia, and into charitable trust accounts for McManus, Schrock and their wives, and $500,000 went to a family member of McManus, according to the indictment.

The indictment said the arrangement, from January 1, 2016 through April 20, 2018, involved paying athletic organizations for student report cards and falsified charter school enrollment documents, then using that information to get state money. School officials worked with a vendor, Prodigy Athletes, to recruit the students, the indictment said.

The children were not assigned to teachers who have state-required professional certificates, the indictment said. The students also were not in contact with the schools nor were they provided with educational services during the summer months, as some of the co-conspirators claimed, according to the indictment."

1. Online Education is one Mega Scam.

No Zero Compliance Laws or Regs.
