School Scandals -- Columbus City Schools vs. ECOT
In both cases, the behavior is inexcusable. But to my mind, the motives of the Columbus City School system were at least understandable. ECOT, on the other hand, is a thief, a criminal. What they did is a form of embezzlement. I hope they go out of business.
Of interest -- ECOT isn't the only Ohio online charter school to inflate its student numbers. Audits have found at least three others. And charter schools as a whole are the worst-performing schools in Ohio. By the GOP-designed metrics, two-thirds of our charters have a "failing" report card.
