Approximately 500 Non-Tax Non-Chartered Schools Operate In Ohio—Who Minds The Store?
The State is responsible for securing (protecting) a thorough and efficient system of common schools. There are about 500 non-tax non-chartered schools operating in Ohio that are essentially unregulated. These schools receive no public funding.
These schools are supposed to report their attendance to the school district of residence. Do they do so? Who knows? The Ohio Department of Education does not have a record of enrollment data on these schools.
If each of these schools enrolled an average of 50 students that would total 25,000 students for which the State would not have any information. What happened to compulsory school attendance in Ohio?
