Did anyone else think that John was going to found a school in the end

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

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

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.

What is the American obsession that EVERYTHING has to be run like a business and make a profit?

"Charter schools are basically public schools that are tax-payer funded and privately run". Nope, I can't possibly see a problem with this at all.

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.

Did John Oliver just admit there ARE two Olsen twins?

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.

Are there any institutions in America that are not always on the edge of being morally compromised or totally corrupt.

Most of our practices in health and education are considered criminal in most other democracies... with good reason.

“I think I’m legally okay to say that.” Is a summary of this whole show.

"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.

I attended an online charter school in Ohio for my final years of High School.

Yeah... it was de-funded and closed due to misrepresenting attendance. Shocker.
