An Ode to Ohio Charter Schools

By Scott Pullins

 

First they came for White Hat Management, but we didn’t speak out.  After all, who wears cowboy hats in Ohio and Dave Brennan sold off his schools anyway.

 

Then they came for Provost Academy and Virtual Community School of Ohio, but we didn’t speak out.  After all, they didn’t make big campaign contributions like we did.

 

Then they came for ECOT, but we still didn’t speak out.  After all, Bill Lager endorsed Donald Trump and we all love John Kasich instead.  

 

Then they came for our charter schools.  

 

And we looked around and said, but we played nice.    But, we really are the good guys.

 

But there was no one left to speak for us.
