7. I think your brush is too broad
If your complaint is about schools that are "owned" by rich people, and have no oversight, then complain about that.

I will admit I don't understand what you mean when you say the school you attended "in your opinion" was a glorified charter school. Was it a charter school? Or was it a private school? There are MASSIVE differences. And much depends on the state where it operates.

The charter school where I work isn't "owned" by individuals. It's chartered by the public county-level educational folks, and they manage our finances and have oversight over us exactly as they do the traditional school districts they oversee. Other districts have county codes, file reports with the state and all; we do exactly the same. When the auditors go out to check the schools for student count days and health records and every other thing under the sun, we are right there getting inspected as well.

I'm not sure what oversight you think traditional neighborhoods have that is waived for us. I wish it were, the reporting requirements are overwhelming sometimes.
