A proposed change in a rule on how charter school sponsors would be measured on their compliance with state laws has been delayed for now.
On a party line vote, a Republican-dominated panel of lawmakers sent the charter schools rule back to the state office that reviews regulations for their impact on business. But that office has already done a report on this rule. Republican Sen. Joe Uecker of the Cincinnati area says this move is not just an effort to delay charter school sponsors’ evaluations – which are supposed to come out in October.
