The state board of education is launching an investigation into at least one charter school after hearing disturbing testimony from a group of former teachers.
Sexual misconduct, racism, teacher intimidation, questionable testing policies, and mishandling of complaints about those claims were among the allegations the teachers brought to the state board of education meeting.
The teachers were all former employees of the Horizon Science Academy Dayton High School, a charter school managed by the Chicago-based Concept Schools.
When the brand new Aiken High School opens this fall, students will be introduced to personalized learning. Part of the plan is a Carpe Diem charter school inside Aiken, the first oneCincinnati Public Schoolshas sponsored. There's a similar program in Indianapolis, and Ann Thompson went there to take a look and provide this report.
