Receivership schools: is this what Cuomo had in mind for New York?

“What we’ve done in Lawrence is not a traditional district system nor is it a charter school system,” said Jeffrey Riley, the state-appointed receiver of the district who acts as superintendent. “What we’ve done is created a third way of doing business.”
"Charter school operators have contributed to the schools’ improvements, but there are major differences between a school operating under the state’s charter law and one under state receivership that’s being operated by a charter network, officials said."
“Under receivership, when the state takes over, we’re no longer bound by the collective bargaining agreements or the budget and staffing decisions that have operated up until the receivership, so the state had the ability to make changes,” Chester said. “We have complete control over the budget. Where collective bargaining agreements are an impediment to implementing the turnaround plan, we can implement changes … and we have control over staffing."

"Let’s be honest: we need a lot more well-off, well-educated white folks with a personal stake in both charter schools and education reform in general if we’re going to take reform to the next level, both politically and operationally.Whitney Tilson, hedge fund manager and major funding angel for the school privatizing Democrats for Education Reform, thinks there’s not enough rich, educated white folks.( Preaprez) click photo to his blog.
