US Charter Schools are hailed as a great concept, but there is a lot of things going wrong as John Oliver explains in this new segment of Last Week Tonight.

John Oliver takes a close look at Charter Schools and it is a hot mess. Charter schools are privately run, publicly funded, and irregularly regulated. Obama and Presidents before him praise Charter Schools. These schools are seen as provide a high quality education. The quality is though very different across Charter Schools.

There are also cases of Charter Schools closing just after a couple weeks into the school year. There are cases of fraud. The main problem seems that there is no proper oversight over Charter Schools. To open a Charter School and get public funding seems to easy. John Oliver showed a case where the application for a Charter School is plagiarized from another school.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver airs on HBO at 11pm Sundays.
