Bill Phillis of the Ohio Coalition for Equity and Adequacy reports that public schools are welcoming back students who enrolled in the failed Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow (ECOT).

He writes:

“Trumbull County school districts welcoming ECOT students back

“The public school district is the best choice-the real choice-for students. Misleading ads and false promises by the charter industry have enticed lots of students. Public school districts need to put out the welcome mat for ECOT students.

“After an expenditure of $10 billion and nearly two decades of low academic performance and graduation rates, it is clear the Ohio charter experiment is a failure. Public school districts are the best choice. Additionally, the scope of programs, services and curriculum in most charters is scant. And, of course, the industry is rife with scandal, double dealing, non-transparency, nepotism and inefficiencies.”
