Ohio’s superintendent says the state won’t withhold funding to penalize schools for students opting out of standardized tests this year.
Ohio’s ethics agency has warned six of nine directors of Ohio’s fledgling privatized job-creation board that their business interests raise potential conflicts of interest.
The Ohio House’s leading Democrat said the state ethics panel’s dismissal Thursday of complaints involving Republican Gov. John Kasich and his privatized economic development office left unanswered ethical questions.
