"Opponents are critical of the dominant role that for-profit educational management organizations (EMOs) play in Michigan's charter schools. EMOs, some of which have been plagued by allegations of corruption and profiteering, run nearly 75 percent of charter schools in Michigan."

Here's a random charter school website in Detroit I pulled off google maps: /

11 "Academies" in various locations, including the suburbs.

All run by "Charter School Administration Services".

Whose goal is: "to become a GLOBAL leader in education programs & diversified services for lifelong learners"

Why would they want to become a GLOBAL leader?

Um, maybe because they're a FOR-PROFIT education management corporation, that's why.

"The employer is a private, FOR-PROFIT CORPORATION established in the State of Michigan and engaged in the management of charter schools IN SEVERAL STATES...."

Why don't you know about this, since you're from Detroit & all?

And so knowlegeable compared to we outlanders?

And you even have children in charter schools?

maybe you better check & see who runs them. you might be surprised.
