According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, before the Ohio House went into its summer recess, the House Primary and Secondary Education Subcommittee asked…. asked executives from White Hat Management to appear in front his subcommittee to give testimony on whether Ohio’s charter school laws give for-profit companies like White Hat Management too much power and leverage over charter schools.
White Hat declined the invitation to testify, likely because of the pending lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the same statute.
I’ve got a piece of advice for Subcommittee Chairman Stephen Dyer (D-Green).
If a party won’t appear to testify in front of your subcommittee, you can SUBPOENA them! After all, if we can have a parade of witnesses subpoenaed for a kangaroo court of a confirmation hearing which had a predetermined political outcome, why can’t we have David Brennan be subpoened to defend the statute his political donations to Republican state legislators effectively bought?
