Need Independent Investigator For Charter School Group

Letter to the editor

7:13 p.m. EDT, July 4, 2014

Let me get this straight. In their eagerness to support charter schools, state Education Commissioner Stefan Pryor and the State Board of Education have sent $53 million in state taxpayer dollars to a charter school organization called FUSE run by a convicted forger and embezzler who lied about his academic credentials and who also hired a convicted drug dealer and sex offender to work with schoolchildren as a classroom aide and then as a community outreach coordinator [July 3, Page 1, "FUSE Worker On Sex Listing"].

In addition, two top executives at FUSE have hastily resigned and one of them happens to also be on the State Board of Education. Now, call me suspicious, but this all sounds very fishy and $53 million sounds like a lot of money to run just three or four schools. In light of these facts, I do hope that the investigation into this affair is conducted by someone who is truly independent -- not also appointed by or affiliated with Stefan Pryor and the State Board of Education.
