Ex-staff: Ohio charter school’s misconduct rampant

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio State Board of Education expressed shock Tuesday at accounts of sex games, test tampering and other potentially criminal misdeeds at a Dayton charter school, and vowed to investigate.
At the state school board’s regular monthly meeting, four former teachers at one of 19 affiliated Concept Schools in the state, Horizon Science Academy in Dayton, testified to witnessing oral sex among sixth- through eighth-graders that went unreported to parents, achievement tests that were suspiciously handled and a teacher who called black students “monkeys” and “dogs.”
“Inside my blood is boiling,” board member Deborah Cain said after hearing the testimony. “It is almost incomprehensible.”
Stephen Rudnicki, who taught at the school from 2007 to 2013, said he was assigned to teach physical education, though the school had no gym, and said the school billed as a science academy had no functional science lab until 2012. Early on, it also went without computers and sometimes without food for student lunches, he said.
