More Duncan dollars to charter operators

This time around it's $50 million, going mainly to cash-rich private management companies like KIPP, Aspire, and Achievement First for 2-3-many-school expansion. KIPP, the mother of all charter school chains, go the biggest chunk of federal dollars,  
$14.5 million for 21 new schools and 11 expanded schools in a bunch of states including Arkansas, Colorado, Washington, DC, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Texas. That's on top of KIPP's whopping $50 million Investing in Innovation grant. (Edweek)
