Feds Charge Pa. Cyber-charter School Founder

Michigan Charter And Cyber School Bills Lack Quality Controls

Attorney David Hickton said. Trombettas attorney didnt return calls and emails for comment. Trombetta manipulated companies that he created and controlled to draw additional money from the school, which he spent on himself, real estate and a $300,000 plane, Hickton said. Trombetta allegedly bought a Bonita Springs, Fla., condominium for $933,000, paid $180,000 for houses for his mother and girlfriend in Ohio, and spent $990,000 more for groceries and personal expenses, Hickton said.

Jeb Bush, the de-facto leader of these lobbyists, has been to see Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) twice to press for more open cyber school laws in Michigan. Johnson said he voted no on the cyber school bill in late October because of quality concerns. "It's difficult to enact a policy into law and say it'll be successful when there's no example of that success lying around to visit," he said. "To say that this brand new way of educating students should be available at a large scale -- we can't say where that money is going." The virtual school bill passed the Senate in a narrow 20-18 vote at the end of October.
