ECOT went to court to block the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) from auditing student participation in the ECOT online operation. The Franklin County Common Pleas judge denied ECOT’s request for a preliminary injunction to block the audit.
The Franklin County Court of Appeals upheld the lower Court decision on Tuesday. ECOT will likely appeal to the Ohio Supreme Court.
Separately, ECOT filed an administrative appeal with ODE that will be heard December 5.
Where does ECOT get the funds for this flurry of legal activities? Right out of deductions from school districts!
Where is the outrage?
