Kasich Calls For ‘Tough Rules' On Charter Schools, Defends Community Connectors

Gov. Kasich

Gov. John Kasich said Thursday he plans to propose tighter regulations on charter schools when he introduces his executive budget next year.

"We are going to fix the lack of regulation on charter schools. There is no excuse for people coming in here and taking advantage of anything," he said during a year-end speech to members of the Ohio Chamber of Commerce.
