A critical question must be asked. Is Dallas building a charter school bubble in Southwest Dallas that could eventually bust?
On December 16, 2015 a new study was published pointing out the parallels between the housing mortgage crisis and the growth of poorly granted mortgages and the charter school crisis that may be forming due to the very similar growth of poorly managed and funded charter schools where the public is taking the risk but not carefully watching how millions are being invested.
