Several hundred people gathered Tuesday night in east Columbus to protest a Missouri grand jury’s decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing Michael Brown in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson.
Columbus City Schools officials are going door-to-door this week. Theyâ€™re urging the families of third graders who still have not passed the stateâ€™s third grade reading assessment test to enroll their students in summer school or other help sessions.
Through May 16, schools around the state will be testing their students using the Ohio Achievement Assessment, also known as the OAAâ€™s.
The stateâ€™s education superintendent says a substantial number of third graders have failed Ohioâ€™s reading test and are in jeopardy of being held back because they donâ€™t meet state standards.
