95 percent of ancient Ohio was forested. But centuries ago there were also small regions of prairie. Tall grasses and wildflowers were part of the prairie ecology and so were bison. Researchers near Columbus are trying to reestablish a prairie / bison ecosystem.
State Auditor To Investigate Charter School Chain
Ohioâ€™s auditor says heâ€™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.
