Our report, Fraud and waste in California’s charter schools, revealed that an untold amount of public funding is being lost each year.

Click to urge State Senator Ben Allen to support AB 276, a bill ensuring charter schools are held to the same levels of transparency and accountability as traditional, neighborhood schools.
