Ohio Democratic Party Statement on State Board of Education Vote on Chartergate Probe

COLUMBUS – The Ohio Democratic Party released the following statement on today’s vote by the State Board of Education to table a resolution calling for an independent investigation into the Chartergate scandal.

“For the second time today, Ohio’s kids lose, and the for-profit charter school industry wins,” said Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper. “For the second time today, Ohio’s taxpayers lose. We applaud the board members who stood up for Ohio’s kids and accountability today. It’s a shame there weren’t more board members who stood with them. This is not the end of this conversation. We will continue to keep pushing for answers and an independent inquiry into this scandal.”
