TPS may be owed money from the Ohio Department of Education

This showed up in the Columbus Dispatch yesterday. Very interesting.

Relying on charter schools to accurately report their student enrollment might cost the state Education Department $50 million.

Two courts already have said the department must pay, but the State Board of Education voted today to appeal again, this time to the Ohio Supreme Court.

On the receiving end of that $50 million would be traditional public-school districts — possibly including Columbus, Cleveland, Dayton and Toledo. They have the Cincinnati schools to thank.

“This will have significant impact on the schools across the state,” said Scott Ebright, spokesman for the Ohio School Boards Association.
