The Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow (ECOT), the beleaguered online charter school embroiled in a financial battle with the Ohio Department of Education apparently pulled out all of the stops for their 2017 graduation ceremony by bringing in Tucker Carlson from Fox News.

According to Carlson’s booking company, the Washington Speaker’s Bureau, Carlson can be hired for a speaking engagement for a fee of at least $40,001.

Of course, since ECOT can spend their money without any disclosure to the public, thanks to the private nature of their “management” companies and lax state laws, we’ll likely never know the exact amount of taxpayer dollars the “public” charter school paid the Fox News host.  $40,001?  $50,000?  $60,000?  How much more?

Enjoy the speech you paid for:

    Tucker Carson, famous for making the bow-tie the adornment of the stupid, doesn’t need the cash. A reliable proponent of personal responsibility and pulling one’s self up by the boot straps, he can relate to these students his grueling lifetime experience as one of the heirs of the Swanson foods fortune. Bon appetite.
