If you’re a high school student in Ohio, you may be enrolled in a Post-Secondary Enrollment Options Program where you can take courses that’ll earn you college credit (similar to Advanced Placement classes).
But there are rules about the kinds of classes that are offered under this program:
Public and nonpublic high school students may enroll in nonsectarian, college-level courses and receive college credit and/or credit toward graduation from high school.
So let’s say you’re a college willing to take on some high school students. The publicly-funded school districts will help reimburse the cost of tuition. Good deal!
That brings us to the shenanigans taking place at Ohio Christian University, exposed by Carol Biliczky of the Akron Beacon Journal.
