Charter Schools and Private Profits.
Plank, David; Arsen, David; Sykes, Gary
School Administrator, v57 n5 p12-14,18 May 2000

EMOs profit by reducing labor costs (cutting employment or compensation), using economies of scale (operating larger facilities); and providing fewer services (educating "mainstream" elementary students).
