High standards of accountability
If Company A has a private interest that’s outside of the state’s required education standards or even procurement of contracts, that could filter down to the child. In other words, Company A may not have the child’s best interests at heart. This could be anything from curriculum, to building safety, to the quality of teachers. With public schools, the public can request open records of a public school to ensure financial accountability and no conflicts of interest. School districts make their records available, including budgets and payments. Point being, if charter schools are to take public taxpayer dollars, then they should be held to the same high standards of accountability. Private schools are exempt because they do not take public dollars.
In addition to undergraduate and graduate degrees, public school teachers must acquire certification, most undergo student teaching, and take additional course work. They also receive ongoing professional development throughout the school year. Charter school teachers must have an undergraduate degree but are not required to be certified. Educators like librarians must have a graduate degree in traditional public schools, but this is not a requirement for librarians in charter or private schools. Private school teachers have undergraduate and graduate degrees and their fields of expertise can vary. They do not have to go through certification.
