One of the most curious, and perhaps ominous investments, is Communist China's $30 million investment in charter schools in Florida, and the promise of three times that much next year. The Chinese are taking advantage of our EB-5 visa program which people who know about it call the "green card via red carpet" program. This allows foreigners to get legal residency in the U.S. so long as the million dollars they invest will help create at least 10 fulltime jobs. There's no guarantee that those 10 jobs will even be for Americans; they could be all for people imported from China. I don't know about you, but I find this dangerous. I hope state legislatures will hurry up and pass bills that require all charter schools to be run by a board of directors made up of American citizens.
