Ohio tries to diffuse controversy over charter-school whistle-blowers
by Doug Livingston
A department spokesman clarified Thursday that the Ohio Department of Education has not referred four whistle-blower teachers to child protection officials for failing to immediately report suspected child endangerment or neglect issues at a charter school in Dayton.
The four former teachers, who worked at Horizon Science Academy Dayton from 2004 to 2013, alleged at the July 15 state school board meeting that sexual games were played by students and condoned by other educators, and surveillance footage captured students having oral sex at a school function.
The teacher-testimonies were coordinated by ProgressOhio, a liberal policy research group, and promoted on a blog for the Ohio Education Association, the state's largest teacher's union.
