Charter, Source of Compensation for Charitable Leaders

April 1, 2019 - por

The New York Times has run an in-depth investigative piece on the charter school operations of Southwest Key, the troubled charity that “has been awarded almost $1.8 billion to run migrant shelters over the last decade, but is now under federal investigation for possible financial improprieties.” The reporting, by Kim Barker, Nicholas Kulish, Rebecca R. Ruiz, and David Montgomery, with research by Susan C. Beachy, reveals that “the operations of the charter schools, serving about 1,000 students, show how Southwest Key profits off public money, boosting compensation for charity leaders and stockpiling tens of millions of dollars.”
