A check-up on charter-school openness
     Beginning in early January, journalism students at the NewsOutlet journalism lab based at Youngstown State University called nearly 300 of Ohio's publicly funded, privately run charter schools to ask for basic information: Who is the person in charge; is there a management company and, if so, which one; who are the board members, how can they be contacted and when and where do they meet?
     The students entered the results of the phone calls into a spreadsheet in order to track whether schools were willing to provide information that should be public. The answers to the questions will become part of a publicly accessible database at a later date.
