One of the state’s top education leaders in the Legislature has a simple message for Ohio’s largest e-school: follow the law. That call comes as the Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow, or ECOT, refuses to turn over attendance information for a state audit, claiming a dispute over a contract with the state.
ECOT and the Ohio Department of Education are now locked in a legal battle, with the online charter school refusing to hand over student log-in information. The school even has ads playing on TV criticizing Ohio’s leaders.
