Update From the GOP Convention and the ECOT Online School Attendance Controversy
The Republican Convention is underway in Cleveland and Donald Trump supporters and protestors alike have been making their voices heard.
And an audit is being demanded by state officials to take a closer look into the attendance records of the Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow, or, ECOT. Some believe students are not actually engaged in learning for the amount of time they are meant to be, adding to the controversy over the charter school's ability to properly teach its students.
