The Temptations of Charter Schools and Corruption

Fraud is a more common problem in charter schools than most realize. The issue of fraud in charter schools is significant and must be acknowledged and taken seriously as it impacts society. In 2017 it was estimated that 136 million dollars had been lost due to fraud, waste, and mismanagement in the charter school sector Ertas (2021). The case aforementioned maybe because no single authority is charged with investigating and documenting misconduct in school charters. Without accountability, the industry can do what they want essentially. In addition, the role of national philanthropic organizations in funding these charters makes them susceptible to the temptation of making their charter schools look better than they are. Charter Schools are corrupt and susceptible to fraud, violate the public’s trust, and negatively effect students, teachers, and society.
There are many instances where charter schools have been caught in fraudulent acts due to temptation. One of the main barriers is that no single authority is charged with investigating and documenting misconduct in the sector Ertas (2021).

One of the most common strategies involved is embezzlement and misappropriation of public funds that are granted for specific purposes Ertas (2021). When funds are misused, precious resources are diverted away from teachers and students, cheating them. This money is dear to children and teachers. Many teachers pay for their supplies for the year, and any extra funding could help alleviate them financially. It is unfair to expect teachers to supply classrooms when charter schools use the budget to line their pockets. When violations of trust as massive as this happens, the public starts to lose faith in this flawed system. When breaches of trust as massive as this happens, the public begins to lose confidence in this flawed system.
Furthermore, the public cannot help but demand to know how the misappropriated funds are being used precisely after violating their trust. One such event is when an Ohio man directed the charter schools he founded to his business associate’s shell companies for supply and technology purchases, which allowed them to chart triple the market prices for the products. This case is one of many instances where founders intended to benefit their interests. It is incredible how this Ohio man put the needs of his associates befo
