More ECOT Troubles

The giant Ohio online charter school that abruptly closed mid-school-year lost another round of its battle with the state over funding, even as many of its 12,000 students are looking for new schools. The Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow is challenging how Ohio tallied student participation to determine the publicly funded e-school was overpaid. The state already started recouping $60 million from the 2015-16 school year, and ECOT has been running out of money. The Department of Education also concluded ECOT was overpaid by $19 million for 2016-17…the lawyer who considered ECOT’s appeal of that in an informal hearing sided with the state.
