Last week the FBI and IRS executed search warrants at three locations of Oakland's American Indian Model Schools. The top-ranked charter schools were ordered to close earlier this year due to financial mismanagement and allegations that a former director had funneled millions into his own companies. Meanwhile, an Alameda County judge has said the school can stay open while it appeals to the state Board of Education. We discuss the investigation.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Carl Chan, American Indian Model School parent-student advocate
  • Jill Tucker, education writer for the San Francisco Chronicle
  • Troy Flint, spokesperson for the Oakland Unified School District
