Vander Ark dips toe into the charter waters

But after spending more than $1.5 million of investors’ money on consultants and lawyers, Vander Ark walked away from the project, and the schools will not open as planned this fall, leaving others involved stunned and frustrated. -- NYT
Mr. Tillotson, the consultant, said: “It signals what’s wrong with the so-called charter school community. Somebody who doesn’t deserve a charter gets a charter. Somebody who doesn’t deserve a building gets a building. And then somebody who doesn’t care about the communities can turn their head and walk away.”
