The big business of charter schools. – V. Strauss

Strauss, Valarie. “The big business of charter schools.” Washington Post.  August 17, 2012.  Retrieved from: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/answer-sheet/post/the-big-business-of-charter-schools/2012/08/16/bdadfeca-e7ff-11e1-8487-64e4b2a79ba8_blog.html

The report summarizes an interview on CNBC with David Brain who runs a major investment group specializing in charter schools real estate.  Not one time are students mentioned.

Well I think it’s a very stable business, very recession-resistant. It’s a very high-demand product. There’s 400,000 kids on waiting lists for charter schools … the industry’s growing about 12-14% a year. So it’s a high-growth, very stable, recession-resistant business. It’s a public payer, the state is the payer on this, uh, category, and uh, if you do business with states with solid treasuries then it’s a very solid business.
