Ohio’s charter school scandal raises questions about online education

23 Aug

Buried in this article about Ohio’s growing charter school scandal is this sentence:

“Cohen said test scores are inexplicably bad for first-year students at Ohio’s online charter schools. Those schools, which educate children on computers at home, have the worst test scores in a state that has some of the worst-performing charter schools in the nation.”

Given Governor Kasich’s presidential bid, I am surprised that the poor performance of Ohio’s charter schools has not received more attention.
