Ohio’s auditor says he’ll audit a chain of charter schools after several former teachers testified against one of the schools this week.

Dave Yost is launching his investigation at the request of the state teachers union. It comes after several former teachers at Horizon Science Academy of Dayton told the state school board stories of sexual misconduct, racism, teacher intimidation, questionable testing policies, and mishandling of earlier complaints from teachers.

The State Board of Education ordered an investigation after hearing about the complaints.
