Changes to Charter School rules to benefit for-profit companies?

At first the changes to the rules regarding charter schools didn't make sense.  What school would hire teachers without college degrees and without doing a background check?

The missing piece was the rise in the number of out-of-state companies that are running for-profit charter schools in NC.  The major cost in a school is salaries, so the easiest way to make a profit is to hire teachers with no college degree and limited employment opportunities due to problems that would show up on a background check.

Sure, that's simplistic, but what other way is there to interpret the legislature's actions?

I have learned these days that the transparently ignorant, hateful, or greedy explanation is quite often the fact, even though rationally it doesn't really seem possible.
