Extra: More Details on Secret Planning of Ohio Youngstown Takeover

Ohio’s Plunderbund blog continues to release more details about the secret nine-month planning—led by State Superintendent Richard Ross and staff of Governor John Kasich—for the state takeover of the Youngstown schools.

Plunderbund is releasing details from e-mails it has secured from the Ohio Department of Education, e-mails that document Ross’s leadership of the planning and the intentional strategy of the handful of people involved to keep the scheme a secret until the day in late June when it was introduced, all details in place, as a 66 page amendment to another legislative bill. The plan was passed by both houses of Ohio’s legislature within 24 hours.

Ross did not, Plunderbund reports, share his involvement with the state board of education, the body to which he is accountable.
