Ohio Auditor: 4 Other Schools 'Scrubbed' Students

Ohio's state auditor says he's turned up four more school districts that removed poor-performing students from their rolls. Auditor David Yost also identified more than 70 schools or districts with attendance reporting errors, though these didn't appear to be purposeful. The four districts that Yost announced Monday bring to nine the number of total districts Yost has identified in his investigation of the data withdrawal practice known as "scrubbing." The districts Yost identified Monday are Canton, Cincinnati, Winton Woods city schools, and Northridge Local schools. Yost says the state should peg school funding on year-long attendance figures to encourage attendance through the entire year. Yost previously said Campbell, Cleveland, Columbus, Marion and Toledo city schools improperly removed students.
