An email I received today is reproduced, in part, below.

And into whose pockets, may I ask, will this $250,000 go?

Perhaps a tax rebate for taxpayers who are paying for these schools, and who have no representation in how their money is spent?

$250,000 is at stake. Who will take it home?

The text beneath this advertisement said:

Join us on July 1 at the National Charter Schools Conference when The Eli and 
Edythe Broad Foundation awards The Broad Prize for Public Charter Schools. This 
$250,000 award honors the public charter school network that has demonstrated the 
most outstanding overall student performance and has helped close achievement 
gaps among low-income students and students of color.

Congratulations to the top three charter networks:
Achievement First
IDEA Public Schools
KIPP Foundation

Will you be there to cheer on these charter schools?
