The cheating scandal that has enveloped the Columbus City Schools continues to grow.
As it does, the frustration of taxpayers is escalating along with calls for The Dispatch to dig even deeper into this mess that has raised questions about the truthfulness of the district’s attendance records, graduation rates, test scores, performance bonuses and much more.
Reader Nicholas Russell might have said it best:
“As a long-time Columbus taxpayer, I represent dozens of people I have spoken with about the Columbus Public Schools data-rigging investigation in asking The Dispatch to intensify its coverage of this investigation. While the information that has been reported thus far has been very well delivered, this situation is evolving daily and needs daily coverage.
