The Ohio Supreme Court has ruled a nonprofit property management company created by a charter school may not claim a school-related property tax exemption. 

The Ohio Department of Education is investigating  complaints of testing irregularities at two charter schools - the Horizon Science Academies in Cincinnati and Columbus. 

More than 400 people are expected to rally at the Statehouse Tuesday in support of an embattled charter school management company and its chain of academies.

Opponents of charter schools made serious allegations during a Statehouse rally earlier today.

Republican Ohio Governor John Kasich is standing by the head of the state education department in the wake of the controversy surrounding a Dayton charter school.

Ohio Department of Education officials say they have forwarded allegations of sexual misconduct, test tampering and other possible criminal misdeeds at a Dayton charter school to Montgomery County Children Services and Dayton police.

State school board members in Ohio say they are shocked at accounts of sex games, test tampering and other potentially criminal misdeeds at a Dayton charter school, and they pledge to investigate.
