Statement on financial improprieties at IDEA Public Schools
Statement from Bibi Yasmin Katsev, Executive Director, Texas District Charter Alliance on financial improprieties at IDEA Public Schools
May 26, 2021
We need to be able to trust the officials charged with running our public schools and public institutions. Therefore, it pains us to read about the financial improprieties previously occurring at IDEA Public Schools. These issues were brought to light through the Board’s extensive auditing procedures. We support strong financial and academic accountability for school districts and charter schools, and believe these guard rails protect and provide a high-quality environment for students. We appreciate the focus of the Board on continued transparency and accountability and on what is best for students and teachers.
