189. I don't have specific knowledge...

...of charter schools in Detroit that are "effectively private, for-profit schools."

All either of us knows is that in some cases, schools in Michigan contract with for-profit companies to manage them. The same is true for some regular public schools. But again, contracting for services with a private company is not the same as BEING a private company.

Have SOME charter schools operated essentially as fronts for the companies managing them? Probably. Does that mean that ALL of them or even most of them) operate that way? No.

In one post, you said you believed that there was a charter school in Detroit operated by DTE Energy Co. (the local electric and gas utility company). That is not true, either.
