Looks like President Pro Tempore of the Senate Phil Berger Sr. set up the NC Charter School Advisory Board that approved Phil Berger Jr's charter school

"One member appointed by the General Assembly upon the recommendation of the President Pro Tempore of the Senate, as designated by the President Pro Tempore, shall be appointed to serve until June 30, 2015.

Two members appointed by the General Assembly upon the recommendation of the President Pro Tempore of the Senate, as designated by the President Pro Tempore, shall be appointed to serve until June 30, 2017."

"Regulatory capture occurs when a...regulatory agency created to act in the public interest
instead acts in favor of the commercial or special interests that dominate in the industry
or sector it is charged with regulating.

Like Phil Berger Sr., his designated board members, 
and his son.

Regulatory capture is a form of government failure,
as it can act as an encouragement for large firms to produce negative externalities.

...regulatory capture occurs because groups or individuals
with a high-stakes interest in the outcome of policy or regulatory decisions
can be expected to focus their resources and energies in attempting to gain the policy outcomes they prefer,
while members of the public, each with only a tiny individual stake in the outcome,
will ignore it altogether.

Ignored with the help of compliant press
who didn't bother to report the take over of the charter school system
by Phil Berger Sr. and friends

Regulatory capture refers to when this imbalance of focused resources
devoted to a particular policy outcome is successful at "capturing" influence
with the staff or commission members of the regulatory agency,
so that the preferred policy outcomes of the special interest are implemented.

...A captured regulatory agency that serves the interests of its invested patrons
with the power of the government behind it, is often worse than no regulation whatsoever."

Invested patrons like Paul Norcross, Phil Berger Jr's Chief Political Adviser, 
Baker Mitchell and Phil Berger Jr.

Looks like the President Pro Tempore of the Senate
doesn't appoint anyone to the North Carolina school board.
