Part II Court Case in Favor of ECOT and a Report of What Has Happened to the ECOT Students

The 10th District Court of Appeals rules in favor of ECOT. The court gave a green light for ECOT to appeal the Ohio Department of Education's June 2017 decision to force ECOT to repay $60 million of payments. The State Supreme Court still has yet to decide the ECOT case on the retroactive application of the ODE's log-in requirements per student that put ECOT in non-compliance, which ultimately led to the school's closure. Ohio House Education Chairman Andy Brenner and State Rep. Andy Thompson discuss the court's decision and the tragic situation for the ECOT students that are still not accounted for by the Ohio Department of Education after the school's forced closure back in January.
