Ohio online students not showing up for state assessments

The Akron Beacon Journal reports Ohio Department of Education officials have acknowledged that a large percentage of students enrolled in the state’s online charter schools are not taking their required Ohio assessments. The state Legislature is currently considering a bill that would require students who skip the tests for two consecutive years to be expelled from their online schools and prevented from enrolling in others. This could have a big impact on virtual schooling in Ohio, which has seen a doubling of enrollment over the past two years.
