A newspaper reports that the Ohio Department of Education has seen a 69-percent increase in referrals for the possible teacher misconduct during the past seven years.
Referrals are for behaviors ranging from conduct unbecoming to more serious violent and drug offenses.
Officials say there are several reasons for the increases, including changes to state law in the past decade that have allowed for greater accountability.
