Abstract

This presentation discusses how some charter school officials in the United States are using related-party transactions to funnel money
fraudulently into other business ventures. This presentation also explains how this behavior is similar to the Enron scandal. Further, this presentation identifies several measures that can be taken to strengthen the ability of charter school gatekeepers to protect against this danger.
