Steve Dettelbach @SteveDettelbach🔁Talk about the foxes guarding the henhouse! So DOE and a court say ECOT over billed the state for $80 mill and this g twitter.com uy is holding them up as typical of all charter schools? We need independent leaders who aren't in anyone's pocket to prevent this from happening again.
Erin Vania @ErinVania🔁I am a very honest, hardworking teacher of very real students. Are you calling us "criminal?" ECOT is so much bigger twitter.com than a profit or a scandal. If you knew the teachers and the students we serve, you might not be so quick to judge.

Erie Co Democrats @eriecountydems🔁Really??? A press conference defending ECOT?? This is beyond tone-deaf. Where was when ECOT was raking the system for millions while utterly compromising public eduction?
ecotPALS @ecotPALS🔁Again - never said trad pub schools don’t deal with similar issues but theres a stark difference between the scale an twitter.com d timing of issues. Plenty of data on that front. vast majority of ECOT students arrive late in their K-12 careers and behind. Apple meet orange
Shauna W @shaunayomama🔁Honestly, as an ECOT teacher, if any empathetic, conscientious, human being actually took the time to understand our students' lives, and what we do to help them, they would support us. That is why 12,000 families and 800 Ohio teachers choose ECOT.

d paul m @dpaul_m🔁Hey - do you plan on donating all that $$$ you’ve received from eCot to a worthy cause? Or are you going to keep all twitter.com that bribe money?
Buckeye Dreamer @DreamerBuckeye🔁But Ace blocked me when I addressed him about ECOT and I critiqued him, his friends, and family. Ace is an elitist s twitter.com nob so I pulled a Darcy letter. whatevs...not my best move but I had to share everything. Love makes you foolish-such a stupid crush-that's hard to get over.
Cynthia Marinos @CyndiMarinos🔁Details in Dispatch story on ECOT are startling. It was a fraud from the start: in its first year it reported 2,270 students, but records show only SEVEN logged on to any school computer systems. Not 70, not 700. Just 7. They got a slap on the wrist and kept right on going.
Jimmy ECOT @NotJimTrakas🔁You're darn right I'm sad and angry - I just lost my lobbying job with ECOT!! twitter.com
Mike Emanuele @rexpop🔁@mrsgeedeck @RichCordray The ECOT thing?
ecotPALS @ecotPALS🔁Not sure why ur projecting your us vs. them narrative on me. Ecot nor I have ever made such claims. I have 3 of my o twitter.com wn children in trad. pub schools and 1 in Ecot. For my fam, it’s more about the students than the school - & yes some kids r apples and others oranges

ECOT - we’re better than public schools!
Also ECOT - don’t compare us to public schools. twitter.com It’s apples and oranges!
BreakingNewzman @BreakingNewzman🔁Which likely explains why ECOT was able to get away with taking taxpayer money without proof of its students online-> twitter.com Ohio Republicans got bulk of campaign money from now-closed ECOT
Christopher Stanley @CPStanley52🔁Actually, ECOT survived this long due to extremely dedicated teachers, incredible students and thousands of families chosing to educate their students with their choice.
ecotPALS @ecotPALS🔁Apples and oranges Ned - students aren’t born into ECOT like traditional school districts - most end up there for a v twitter.com ariety of reasons late in their high school yrs and many have already dropped out before day 1 at ECOT. 65% of HS arrive at lease a year behind academically
jsh frdmn @jfreedman2009🔁Mr. Cordray did great work in DC, but he hasn't been in Ohio. He doesn't know Ohio issues.
And when he tries to capitalize on Ohio leaders' work, mistakes like this happen.
Rich Cordray took money from .
We can't let DC decide our nominee. 2018 is too important.
Deb Escobar @descobar91🔁Years of loose laws have allowed for-profit to come into our state and let a few people make a lot of money off our kids.
took over $100,000,000 from Ohio's education budget every year.
🇺🇸Ned Ryerson🇺🇸 @NedRyersonPunx🔁Yes, public schools never deal with such things 🙄
Unfortunately, ECOT typically fails again because 1/6 dropouts in twitter.com the state of Ohio are from ECOT
ShutItDown Brown @DestinationCbus🔁Scammers gonna scam.. want to know why Columbus City Schools are short millions in funding? Talk to the Ohio Legislat twitter.com ure about ECOT and the profit pirates they sent the TAX DOLLARS to make richer.
WTVG 13abc @13abc🔁A glimmer of hope for the Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow, or ECOT. We find out what the future holds for the onlin twitter.com e charter school less than a week after its financial sponsor cut ties.
ecotPALS @ecotPALS🔁Unfortunately that’s not usually how it goes. Once students are a burden or a detractor to the funding equation, they twitter.com ’re not so important any longer - sad but true -
Kelly A. Braun @KellyAnnBraun🔁's founder was using your taxpayer dollars, from the state's education budget, to profit off kids.
He did that for nearly 18 years. Then Senator stopped him.
Brandy @BBOBEK24🔁Trying melatonin tonight since I can’t sleep... because every time I close my eyes I think of all my kids at ECOT str twitter.com uggling right now. I have to keep praying that justice will prevail!
"The State Of Ohio" @stateofohioshow🔁The Democratic primary for governor is getting heated, with 's running mate blasting on ECOT
Kelly A. Braun @KellyAnnBraun🔁And, this thread makes me even more proud to stand with for . . and . have been fighting for equal accountability and transparency for ECOT all along. They are on the watch for our kids!
John Cahill @coachjcahill🔁Rep Andy Brenner says ECOT’s closing is a threat to school choice in Ohio, “if they can do this to ECOT what’s to stop them from doing this to other charter schools.”
🇺🇸Ned Ryerson🇺🇸 @NedRyersonPunx🔁Lol. The 40% 4-year grad rate. The 5-year rate is like 45%. That’s terrible and shameful. Even the Big 8 schools are twitter.com miles ahead by comparison. Don’t try to do the stats hokey pokey when the stats aren’t even a bit favorable. ECOT’s performance is terrible anyway you disect it
Cynthia Sullivan @casullivan61🔁.: The scandal is "the precise reason so many Ohioans have lost faith in their government and feel isolated from their democracy."
ecotPALS @ecotPALS🔁That’s a 4 year “on time” rate - careful now.... 40-45% of ECOT grads not even counted in that rate. Even Worse- the twitter.com previous failing schools receive a false + bump in their rate for failing those students. The whole statewide median average is off at both ends
Wes Weaver @WesLVHS🔁Didn’t you take money from Bill Lager and ’s COO?
Check your reports (9/18/06 and 10/9/08) and get back to us. Thanks!
🇺🇸Ned Ryerson🇺🇸 @NedRyersonPunx🔁@iteachohio @ZackSpaceOhio @andrewbrenner I know plenty about the perils of ECOT. The evidence is readily available.
Jimmy ECOT @NotJimTrakas🔁THROWBACK: what most of you probably don't know is that ECOT was not the only FAILED charter school I profited from:
ecotPALS @ecotPALS🔁Thank you! I have 3 children enrolled in traditional pub schools and 1 in ECOT - actually in limbo - it’s not about twitter.com the school. It’s about the student and it’s about time that the ed establishment embraces that concept
Ohio BATs @OhioBATs🔁Consider this quote:
"Based on the size of the repayment for just the 2015-16 school year, ECOT might have over-billed the state by more than a half-billion dollars over its lifetime, while its founder, William Lager, showered politicians with campaign cash."
ecotPALS @ecotPALS🔁Not even can stop these ECOT students from getting an education after booting them from their . Waiting on the new school to finish enrollments & trying to figure out how to retroactively document our log-in log-out times at
Shannon Gilchrist @shangilchrist🔁Candidates are pointing fingers over the $2.1 million in campaign money ECOT’s operator has doled out during the past two decades. Here's who got the most:
JanetGorman 📎 @jcgfrippout🔁NEW: As ECOT goes down in flames, the political battle breaks out over $2.1M in campaign contributions from its founder et al - and none of the Ohio elected officials who got it wants to give up the money.
🇺🇸Ned Ryerson🇺🇸 @NedRyersonPunx🔁Teachers are required to have a minimum level of certification. Not everyone has the same. ECOT is shutting down beca twitter.com use they “overbilled” districts for attendance. I’m not your research assistant. You’d think a staunch defender of ECOT would know how to google 🤷♂️

pastandpresentgaming @pastpresShaun1🔁@RichCordray Where's the accountability with any of these schools not just Ecot. Columbus public schools aren't exactly wonderful either.

Teach Ohio @iteachohio🔁“ECOT’s coo”? Deceptive and misleading language from someone who wants to have a future in politics. Try to elevate t twitter.com he discussion.
KHermiller @KHermiller🔁Reps. Andy Thompson & begin press conference discussing ECOT students & school choice
Teach Ohio @iteachohio🔁Wrong. Many students came to ECOT many grade levels behind. Their public school had failed them. twitter.com
KHermiller @KHermiller🔁As part of its latest appeal, ECOT founder, Bill Lager, has agreed to suspend all management and learning platform fees through June in an effort to keep ECOT open for the students and staff. It's now ODE's and the Legislation's chance to do what's best for the students
KHermiller @KHermiller🔁Joe takes credit for being the force that brought ECOT down. He has not considered fining any public school for their outrageous absenteeism rate. Instead, he engages in a childish battle to bring down Lager and use it to promote his political campaign. Pitiful abuse of power.
Teach Ohio @iteachohio🔁Payback has been made nearly impossible since the ODE forced ECOT to close mid year. ODE just shot itself in the foo twitter.com t and punished 12,000 students in the process.
KHermiller @KHermiller🔁 URGENT, 12k students & 2k seniors abandoned unless ODE intervenes NOW for
pastandpresentgaming @pastpresShaun1🔁Oh please give me a break! What about Columbus public schools! There not doing so great either. Ecot was such a bette twitter.com r choice most CPS are failing,overcrowded 300 million dollars in the hole over next 5 yrs etc. Why don't these moron politicians fix that DUH:( Ecot was great.
KHermiller @KHermiller🔁I agree with you Mr. Dettelbach. As an ECOT teacher, I know this whole situation is about money and politics. 12,000 students are without the school mid-year. The students are victims of this situation. These representatives stood up for what is right.
abbitch @ahbramey🔁Every public dollar stolen from our children most in need, further demonstrates the deep, white supremacy inherent to American capitalism.
A failure like ECOT is only possible in a system that has abandoned it's duty to lift our citizens up.
