Integrity in Education is a project whose mission is to restore integrity to the conversation about public education. We believe that providing equal opportunity to all children is a moral imperative, not just an economic necessity. Supporting high-quality public schools that are open to all, regardless of background or identity, is an essential part of ensuring liberty and justice for all.

Let's restore integrity to the education conversation.

 All across America, public school students, teachers, families and their communities have done incredible work to build a powerful movement to counter the growing corporate dominance of our public schools. It’s time to bring our movement into prime time, and restore much-needed integrity to the public conversation about education, all while supporting a truly fantastic cause.
That means speaking honestly about about what we need and want for our children, our schools and our future, guided by our shared democratic values and the best available evidence. Together, we can transform this conversation. 

Report: Charter School Vulnerabilities to Waste, Fraud & Abuse


Release: “A new report released today reveals that fraudulent charter operators in 15 states are responsible for losing, misusing or wasting over $100 million in taxpayer money.”

Summary: “Charter School Vulnerabilities to Waste, Fraud And Abuse,” authored by Haven Recovery Center, the Center for Popular Democracy, Getting US Covered and Integrity in Education, echoes a warning from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of the Inspector General. The report draws upon news reports, criminal complaints and more to detail how, in just 15 of the 42 states that have charter schools, charter operators have used school funds illegally to buy personal luxuries for themselves, support their other businesses, and more. The report also includes recommendations for policymakers on how they can address the problem of rampant fraud, waste and abuse in the charter school industry. Both organizations recommend pausing charter expansion until these problems are addressed.
