The Thomas B. Fordham Institute says Ohio’s school report cards are unfair to schools with high rates of poverty.

The education research and advocacy group released its recommendations to improve Ohio’s school report cards Thursday. In it, the group says the state focuses too heavily on test scores and not enough on student long-term growth, leaving high poverty schools with D’s and F’s.

A high-ranking official for the state's main administrative business agency is in trouble in a newly released report.

The state has awarded nearly $10 million for research and development projects to try to stem opioid addiction, part of the $20 million Gov. John Kasich said he wanted to set aside for high-tech solutions to the epidemic. 

“We look at it as a new class of opioid,” Sturmer said.

Greg Sturmer is with Elysium Therapeutics. It is developing a new kind of pill that would limit how much of the painkilling substance would be released into the body.

He says that could  prevent overdoses and even stop addiction.
