Ohio’s superintendent says the state won’t withhold funding to penalize schools for students opting out of standardized tests this year.
Vigil Held At Burned Out Home Where 3 Died
Relatives and friends held candles in the cold outside the Ohio house where three people died in a Christmas Eve fire.
Investigators in Columbus believe a space heater near a mattress caused the fire that killed a 4-year-old boy, his mother and a man who was staying with them in a home reported to be vacant. Monday night’s vigil came a day before the funerals for the mother and son. The boy also would have turned 5 on Tuesday.
Family members say the fire victims were good people who are missed.
The property was charged last week with a housing code violation for a different occupied home that lacked heat.
