Running the Country Like Enron

Trouble with "charter schools" doing poorly?

From the New York Times

New York Times
WASHINGTON, Aug. 27 - The Department of Education is sharply cutting back on the information it collects about charter schools for a periodic report that provides a detailed national profile of public, private and charter schools.
In an e-mail message, Susan Aspey, a spokeswoman for the Education Department, said the decision to switch to a random sample had been made in the first year of the Bush administration "for technical reasons."
"There is nothing sinister or untoward about this," Ms. Aspey wrote, adding, "We are absolutely not cutting back on collecting information on charter schools."
