Ohio Goes After Charter Schools 

Sam Dillon of the New York Times reports that the state of Ohio is aggressively trying to close low performing charter schools. Ohio, specifically Dayton, is a leader in the charter school movement, third behind New Orleans and Washington, D.C. for the number of students enrolled.

Unfortunately, this year more than 50% of the state's 328 charters were graded as a "D" or an "F."

Could this be because Ohio has 70 authorizers of charter schools?
