East Austin Charter School

(Community Matters) hmm, I’m certainly not against charter schools, though potentially have reservations about Southwest Keys, its governance and transparency. As to charter schools, I’m a big fan of KIPP and the UT School. But, there are unconfirmed reports SW Keys’ CEO pays himself $600k to $800k from various affiliated entities associated with the nonprofit. I notice that a champion who helped him overcome previous community objections is a substantial vendor to Southwest Keys and that the school will pay rent to Southwest Key and share an administrator. Feels like Austin community leaders are being used to accomplish something Southwest Keys was unable to obtain approval for; something doesn’t feel right here. Hope I’m wrong.
