Charter schools have it pretty good – Charter schools given $60k in performance payments despite contract issues.
Four charter schools were awarded $60,000 in performance payments last year, despite only one of them fully meeting the terms of their contracts.
Since they didn’t meet their targets they’re being paid an ideology bonus (charter schools good!) not a performance bonus.
The Labour Party says the decision “defeats the purpose” of the contracts, and underlines the disparities between the well-funded charter schools and their struggling state equivalents.
Exactly. More in Labour’s press release – Bonuses for charter schools, deficits for state schools.
Fortunately David Seymour is here to clear all this up.
ACT leader David Seymour says critics of charter school funding “need to see the forest for the trees”.
Makes as much sense as anything else he says.
