"Education is about making money." So I guess children exist to make adults money. Why not just get right to it and get back to children working in sweatshops? Cut out the middleman as it were.

Weird to see him talk about the Olsen twins as if they were twins, and not one person moving at lightning speed from one position to the other, for reasons yet unknown

John Oliver for President! I mean, he already has his own team of writers, and is funded by a multimillionaire conglomerate. Plus, he looks like Harry Potter's suburban dad.

Well, shit. As a pregnant mother I've been looking into future schooling options for my child and a charter school seemed like a great option... But I live in Ohio and after watching this video and how unregulated Ohio charters are, I'm definitely going to do more research.

I went to a charter school for middle and high school. As a product of that system, I watched countless friends drop out before tenth grade including myself and didn't actually learn anything. My last year of middle school my social studies teacher just let us play Risk every single day stating it was " increasing our world knowledge"...We need to regulate charter schools better. Like many others, my principal also "plead guilty to using school funds".

went to a charter in TX, and here's a few things I didn't realize werent "normal" about school until I graduated:
-large groups of staff quitting at once
-cafeteria regularly running out of food
-principal quitting and taking the banner software with him, accidentally erasing credits
-new principal never being on campus except for board meetings.
I did get a good ed. for the most part, but my god it was a huge shitshow the rest of the time

To be fair as John Oliver knows Mary Kate did not plagiarize her sister's face, because they are only one person moving really really fast.

I was like laughing and shocked til the end, and all of a sudden it hit me, and I couldn't laugh anymore, I'm just so sad and devastated for the kids, especially because it's the most vulnerable populations that are targeted.

The sad thing is, this report barely scratches the surface of the problems with Charter Schools. It just gets so much worse 🤬
