State school board members in Ohio say they are shocked at accounts of sex games, test tampering and other potentially criminal misdeeds at a Dayton charter school, and they pledge to investigate.
Four former teachers testified Tuesday to witnessing oral sex among 6th- to 8th-graders that went unreported to parents, achievement tests that were mishandled and a teacher who called black students "monkeys" and "dogs," among other things. They say Ohio's ignored past concerns.
A spokesman said under Ohio law the state Department of Education must turn complaints over to a charter-school sponsor for follow-up.
