Ranking Democratic member on the House Education Committee, State Rep. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) today issued the following statement in response to reported allegations that an online charter school, Ohio Virtual Academy (OHVA), has been collecting taxpayer money for hundreds of students who should have been withdrawn for truancy many months ago:

“The detailed information my office received demands a thorough investigation. OHVA has a long history of poor academic performance, and now we are seeing a pattern of poor fiscal performance. We must put in place the reforms needed to ensure it does not happen again– for Ohio’s taxpayers and for our children.”

Today, Fedor sent a letter to the House Education Committee detailing the attendance rigging allegations.
