ABSTRACT
The article explores how Educational Management Organizations (EMOs) are reshaping public charter schools into neoliberal, for-profit enterprises. It contends that EMOs not only undermine the public, other-regarding good of public education, but aggressively work to conflate public and private ultimately labeling for-profit, private educational good as public. It then concludes by maintaining that the preservation of the public school system will sustain democratic ideals.
