New Ohio charter school proposal

Even has charter supporters running for the hills

White Hat owner Brennan
One message that comes across loud and clear already, though: For-profit corporations would gain more power to set up and run the taxpayer-funded schools - potentially without the oversight from sponsors that is required now.-- Cleveland Plain Dealer

But knowledgeable observers agree the amendments would shift power to companies like Akron-based White Hat Management. The company, founded and owned by David Brennan, runs a host of Hope Academies and Life Skills Centers in Ohio and other states. A spokesman did not return a call for comment.
"This is a blatant giveaway of public money to big Republican campaign contributors like David Brennan, who now will be able to enrich themselves even more at taxpayer expense," said Dale Butland, spokesman for Innovation Ohio.
