The Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow, Ohio’s largest online charter school, is seeing less money coming from the state because of rulings concluding it over-reported student participation. Now a state leader is suggesting ECOT could recover some of that money by taking it back from its founder’s private corporations.

A lawmaker wants to plug a potential hole in education funding and accountability.  The measure would make sure that traditional public schools are getting more money if charters don’t need it or shouldn’t have it.

If an enrollment audit by the state auditor discovers that a charter school is getting more money for students they don’t have, the money goes back to the state education department. But Democratic Sen. and candidate for governor Joe Schiavoni of Boardman says that money should go directly to public schools.
