Over 100 Ohio charter schools defy transparency

More than 100 Ohio charter schools refused to provide the most basic information about themselves -- who's in charge -- despite receiving millions of dollars in public funds, an examination by The News Outlet based at Youngstown State University found. In a story published by The Akron Beacon Journal, reporters documented Ohio charter schools' lack of accountability to parents and tax payers. Student journalists spent weeks calling and emailing nearly 300 schools, the bulk of those in a system referred to by reporters as the "Wild West" of charter schools. The investigation was led by The Akron Beacon Journal.
