From the Buckeye State...

A reader of mine in the great state of Ohio alerted me to what's going on there...

The state AG has sued 2 charter schools in Dayton (the city in Ohio hit hardest by charters), saying that they're sucking up public funds and are at the state's lowest academic rating; therefore they deserve to be closed. You can predict the rest-- charter school advocates are pretty much rushing to the defense of charters in the state and nationwide, claiming that a few bad apples shouldn't tarnish the name of the entire school choice movement. They also say that the lawsuit is premature and supersedes existing legislative options for the charter school closure.

More here, here, here and here.
