Kaisch defends appointing ex-Buckeye to Board of Education

Jun 22, 2012

Ohio Governor John Kasich is defending his decision to appoint former Ohio State quarterback Stanley Jackson to the state Board of Education, despite his apparent lack of an educational background. The State Education Department says the charter school for African-American males Jackson claims to have founded does not exist, and Ohio State says Jackson never graduated. The Republican-controlled Ohio Senate must still confirm Jackson's appointment to succeed board member Dennis Reardon.
