We hear it all the time from the pro-choice charter crowd. “We don’t get the funding traditional schools get.” “It’s not fair.” Wah Wah Wah! Traditional schools don’t get over a million dollars in contributions through foundations. They get taxpayer money just like charters do. And look at all the names on here! Some of these are very familiar names in the corporate education reform movement here in Delaware!
Compare this to the priority schools in Wilmington. They have been cash poor for years from tax cuts back in 2009 that were never restored. It’s easy to have lower proficiency gaps when you rake in the funding which allows for more resources. And now that you have your hooks in Family Foundations Academy, I’m sure you will be asking for more this year!
