2 charter schools shut down in Columbus, Ohio

After officials find "deplorable" conditions, state steps in at schools that had been open for only a few weeks

The Ohio state school superintendent has ordered the immediate shutdown of two new Columbus charter schools where conditions were found to be deplorable. The Columbus Dispatch reports that the schools had been open only a few weeks, but several visits from the Ohio Department of Education found that the middle-school students at the Talented Tenth Leadership Academy for Boys and Talented Tenth Leadership Academy for Girls, which were housed in different buildings, weren’t properly supervised. There were serious fights. There weren’t enough staff members. Lunch wasn’t served on a set schedule, and often it was simply fast food that someone had picked up.
