A liberal-leaning charter school critic says the federal government has put nearly $30 million into charter schools that have either closed or never opened in the first place. Statehouse reporter Andy Chow has more.
A report from Innovation Ohio’s Know Your Charter says a state panel that distributed the millions of dollars was made up of members from different charters that ended up getting the funds.
Know Your Charter’s Steve Dyer says improving this system needs to be a team effort.

Auditor Dave Yost has said he wants to keep tabs on charter schools and their reported attendance, since those schools get state funding based on the number of students they have enrolled and attending classes.
On one day in 2014, he ordered staffers to show up at charter schools for surprise visits to take attendance. Yost said then that those pop-ins found nearly half the schools had the number of students they told the state they did.
