Walton Foundation: We Must Rethink Online Learning
Walton Foundation: We Must Rethink Online Learning
 
The Walton Family Foundation has invested nearly $400 million to create new charter schools. More than $500,000 of Walton money has been allocated to promote online charter schools. The January 26, 2016 Education Week opinion by Marc Sternberg and Marc Holley indicate that the Walton group has lost confidence in online charters. When the Walton charter advocates question the efficacy of online charters, state officials should take note. Evidence is abundant that the online charter industry in Ohio is a doleful failure.
 
But campaign funding and inordinate, obscene online charter spending on lobbyists, marketing and recruiting keep the private online industry flourishing in Ohio.
