State Charter Law Punishes Ohio’s Largest Districts

August 24, 2011
   

Release of school rating data by the Ohio Department of Education shows that state education law is stacked against Ohio’s urban school districts. Even though five of the eight urban districts – Akron, Canton, Cincinnati, Columbus and Toledo – have been graded at or above Continuous Improvement for the second year in a row, urban districts are unable to check the growth of charters. This continued uncontrolled expansion destabilizes funding and enrollment for districts, undercutting their ability to address the needs of children in our cities.
