Brother of VP Biden promotes charters, invoking family name

“Francis W. “Frank” Biden, a younger brother of Vice President Joe Biden, is a real estate developer in Florida. He also is helping a for-profit company open charter schools in the state by employing a major asset: his last name.”

Quote: “At some Mavericks locations, not enough students are given state assessments to earn ratings from the Florida Education Department. ”

“When students do take the tests, many of them do poorly. A report on annual yearly progress at Mavericks High of North Dade showed that 148 students took the reading Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test in the 2009-10 school year–and none passed.”
