CHARTER SCHOOLS-PROTEST
Former teachers say sex games, test tampering went on at Ohio charter school chain

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, July 15, 2014 5:44 PM EDT
COLUMBUS, Ohio


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.

Horizon Science Academy of Dayton is one of 19 affiliated schools in Ohio that have been associated with an influential U.S.-based Muslim cleric, Fethullah Gulen. The FBI is investigating three of the Ohio schools.

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.
