Here’s a great series of ProPublica stories on the accountability of “Alternative Schools”, charter schools and the like, across the nation.

https://www.propublica.org/series/the-failure-track

Stories examine how districts can shunt underperforming students or even dropouts to charter schools. How for-profit schools get money for the state, even for kids who’ve dropped out.  As a result of a story that ran in this series, Florida initiated a deeper investigation into whether charter schools are underreporting the number of dropouts.
