✝️🔮💗Nikolas💗🔮✝️ @InfiniteNikolas🔁Ohio judges raise money to get elected, then turn around to hear cases concerning those same donors. Our broken political system even affects the judicial branch.
Exhibit A: ECOT founder who made huge contributions to 3 of 7 judges on OH Supreme Court.

Buckeye Dreamer @DreamerBuckeye🔁Read the ' amicus brief asking the Ohio Supreme Court to side with over :
"ECOT Seeks To Make A Mockery Of Ohio's Education System"
Buckeye Dreamer @DreamerBuckeye🔁No child deserves the chaos, uncertainty, and awful odds at graduation that has offered students over the past 2 (actually, 18) years.
Let's make sure no one ever has to again.
About SB 39:
Buckeye Dreamer @DreamerBuckeye🔁13/ Read more about 's online charter school bill here:
Then CALL these state se ohiosenate.gov nators (especially the committee chair).
Ask for hearings and a vote for Joe's bill, Senate Bill 39:
Buckeye Dreamer @DreamerBuckeye🔁 has lost nearly every single step in the legal process until now.
But if they somehow manage to win at the Ohio Supreme Court, it will have drastic, long-lasting, negative consequences for tens of thousands of students for years to come. 9/

Linda Fenner @Linda_Fenner🔁The scandal is exactly why I fought so hard to make the language in the YDA platform support our public schools at every turn possible. I’m constantly reminded by ’s and ’s fight to hold them accountable that this was a worthwhile cause.
lisa witham @cheezwitham🔁After ECOT closure, students without transcripts
Glass No Dream-No Vote City Indivisible @GC_Indivisible🔁 ECOT has the WORST 4-year graduation rate in America. That is not a success. twitter.com

KHermiller @KHermiller🔁Ironically, your JoeforJobs campaign comes at a time when 800 teachers are unemployed because of your efforts via teachers union propaganda. It is sad that you know nothing about ECOT but act anyway. SAY NO TO JOE
KHermiller @KHermiller🔁Why did you vote to give ECOT only 2 years to pay back the money while giving failed public schools 5 years. By the way, ECOT was not a failed school. Hope your hubbie enjoys the teachers union money.
KHermiller @KHermiller🔁It is unacceptable that you and your running mate crucify ECOT without ever visiting a classroom, talking to a current teacher or student before voting to send 800 teachers to the unemployment lines and leave 12000 students with no schools mid year.
KHermiller @KHermiller🔁When you have State Board of Education members in bed with the teachers’ unions, they cannot objectively do their jobs. Example: Board President Stephanie Dodd, who has been bankrolled by the unions to fight/vote against School Choice and ECOT.
KHermiller @KHermiller🔁Why are we not holding ODE accountable? From 2002-2011 they passed ECOT on attendance audits, then in May 2016 they tried to retroactively hold echarter schools to new attendance guidelines that were not approved as law by our legislature. ODE is trying to take the easy way out.
Beth Sheehan @PawsandtheLaw🔁RIDICULOUS! ECOT attorney argues before OH Supreme Court for FULL FUNDING for students that do NO WORk & log in once / month
Ohio BATs @OhioBATs🔁 🙌🙌 Brilliant comparison. There was NO retroactive rule change. #ECO twitter.com T
Ohio BATs @OhioBATs🔁Don't forget as you follow the live stream of the case where is arguing $80m of your tax dollars should pay for kids they can't prove ever were educated by them that campaign contributions led to state politicians allowing this to happen.
Ohio BATs @OhioBATs🔁If cared less about profits and more about students, they never would have filed the lawsuit that has reached Ohio's Supreme Court today.
Ohio BATs @OhioBATs🔁Just gonna leave this picture of 's recently remodeled headquarters right here for absolutely no reason.
Ohio BATs @OhioBATs🔁Thread:
Today, Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow () will argue to the Supreme Court that online charter schools don't need to actively teach students in order to receive tens of millions of dollars from Ohio's education budget. 1/
Ohio BATs @OhioBATs🔁Hi yes this is we'd like all the money from your public schools even if no one ever learns anything Kthxbye
Jesse Herrick @JesseHerrick🔁 used Ohio tax dollars to experiment on tens of thousands of students while failing to meet basic educational requirements and clocking some of the lowest graduation rates of any school in the country. This experiment cheated our children and our taxpayers.

Stephenshalos @Stephen45514102🔁The burden of a school closing falls on students who no longer have a school to attend & Ohio taxpayers who have footed the bill that was mismanaged w/ broken promises made to the state, taxpayers, students & communities. Demanding answers for Ohioans after ECOT’s recent closure.
Dawn Neely-Randall @dawnintheworld🔁"How is it not absurd?" O'Connor asked. In response to ECOT stating that they should be payed based on enrollment numbers only.

Dawn Neely-Randall @dawnintheworld🔁Today, Stephanie Dodd, an elected member of Ohio’s State Board of Education and Senator Joe Schiavoni's pick for Ohio Lieutenant Governor, voted in her capacity on the State Board to recoup nearly $20 Million ($19,234,109.11) that had been overpaid to ECOT.
Mounir @MounirLynch🔁It is absurd. That’s what and Senate Democrats have been saying for years. It’s time for ECOT to face the consequences.
Like if a student fails to log in for 10 DAYS IN A ROW, the e-school has to notify the state &the child's parents. 12/
Dawn Neely-Randall @dawnintheworld🔁Luckily, Senator and his amazing staff noticed the "offer" vs "provide" amendment. It was the big red flag that got Joe wondering how online are regulated in Ohio. 8/
BuckeyeTeacher @buckeyeteacher3🔁You can't impact the outcome of the case, BUT you CAN help make sure future e-school students have a better chance at success.
ECOT's argument, in my opinion, is already invalid under current law. But there's a LOT more we can do to hold e-schools accountable to kids. 11/
BuckeyeTeacher @buckeyeteacher3🔁The case is so incredibly important.
Every kid deserves a real shot at success in life. Without an , that dream becomes a hell of a lot harder to achieve. 10/
Read more about Bill Lager's brilliant plan here:
BuckeyeTeacher @buckeyeteacher3🔁At one point, Lager's people even tried to pass an amendment through the Statehouse that changed the word "provide" to "offer" in Ohio law, so they could argue they didn't need to actively educate students.
Just "offer" them a chance to learn. 7/
BuckeyeTeacher @buckeyeteacher3🔁Bill Lager avoided scrutiny for in several ways, one of the most audacious of which involved massive donations to nearly every major Republican politician in the state. 6/
BuckeyeTeacher @buckeyeteacher3🔁's abysmal 40% graduation rate was over 40 points lower than the state average.
In fact, it was the worst graduation rate of any high school in the United States. 5/
BuckeyeTeacher @buckeyeteacher3🔁Over the past 18 years, Bill Lager has taken the money his companies made from 's education fund and bought himself houses and beachfront property all over the country.
All while his e-school, , failed to graduate over 60% of its students. 4/
BuckeyeTeacher @buckeyeteacher3🔁Is simply putting classes online worth $275 MILLION being taken from local schools every year and given to e-schools (many of which are run by for-profit corporations)?
's founder and CEO, Bill Lager, runs some of those for-profit corporations. 3/
BuckeyeTeacher @buckeyeteacher3🔁Today, is going to claim they don't even have to check to see if students are at their computers.
They're literally going to argue that all e-schools have to do is put coursework online and give students internet access.
Evelyn @evelynlovesECOT🔁@iAryeh What’s not right is ECOT being there to begin with. They should still be open.
Evelyn @evelynlovesECOT🔁So you think it’s right for ECOT to repay money they educated students with? It’s time to change the education system twitter.com . They retroactively changed the rules. Not ECOTs fault.
Ohio BATs @OhioBATs🔁 @OhioBATS ECOT funding questioned by Ohio Supreme Court justices: "How is it not absurd?" s.cleveland.com
Crab Wells @CrabOfDoom🔁This story is great partially because it shows how pathetic and scammy some charter schools around here are, but also because the lawyer being embarrassed in court is a former parter at my firm who I did not care for.
Mike Rowe @MikeRowe100🔁It is absurd. That’s what and Senate Democrats have been saying for years. It’s time for ECOT to face the consequenc twitter.com es.
Ohio Dems @OHDems🔁@chafvb @OhioAG @DavidPepper We haven't forgotten:
michael chaffee @chafvb🔁 how about an investigation into Dave Hansen attempting to defraud the US GOVT out of millions for FRAUDULENT CHAR twitter.com TERS? Remember him? his wife was Kasich's Chief of Staff? FRAUDULENT CHARTERS THE BRAIN CHILD OF HUSTED? YOST GIVING ECOT AWARDS? ANYTHING?
WOSU News @wosunews🔁"It just seems like the target was to hurt ECOT teachers as much as they could."
ECOT's abrupt closing left hundred twitter.com s of teachers without jobs and without benefits.
Aryeh Alex @iAryeh🔁Our Supreme Court is dominated by a single political party and its members have taken contributions from the very ent twitter.com ity they are hearing a case against. This is not fair nor is it right.

Brandy Cutlip @brandy_cutlip🔁How about investing in kids, families and teachers rather than sweet digs and Key West mansions?
Mounir @MounirLynch🔁Providing all of Ohio students a quality education should be the top priority for our state leaders, rather than profits and campaign contributions like we see in the case.
JeanLR @JeanLR🔁I did Ecot for half of my 8th grade year and it was a joke the computer they gave me was always broken I never got any assignments I was supposed to be receiving. I ended up sitting on MySpace eating nachos all day.

Jean Wedding @jwedding10🔁If it's absurd that would get full funding for educating students who only logged in once per month, it's also absurd didn't bother to check log-in records when he was specifically told they were being fudged by ECOT in 2014.
