The failure of some Oregon charter schools, includes the ones in Sisters, has state lawmakers looking at ways to prevent future problems. The bills would give the State more oversight, but State Representative Jason Conger isn't convinced you can prevent what happened in Sisters: “At the end of the day, if the investigation show fraud or malfeasance, I don't think you can legislate against this. If someone is willing to commit fraud I’m not sure how you legislate around that.” Ed Choices, which ran the Sisters Charter Schools is still being investigated by the Department of Justice on possible racketeering violations.
