Charter bill is just "tweaking" and "window dressing" that ducks real issues with charter schools, says key Democrat in Ohio House

The new House Bill 2 is just window dressing and a distraction while the core issues with charter schools in Ohio aren't touched, State Rep. Teresa Fedor said today.

Fedor, the ranking Democrat on the House Education Committee, said the bill isn't the major charter school reform bill it's being trumpeted as. Instead, she said, House Republicans are avoiding taking on tough issues because many receive significant campaign donations from charter management companies, like White Hat Management of Akron.

"We need to put their feet to the fire," she said, using a play on the word entrepreneur. "These educaneurs are feeding Republicans million of dollars into their campaigns to keep their heads in the sand."
