Ohio school chief unhappy with district's progress

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's top education official tells a newspaper that he's unhappy with the progress of improvements in Youngstown's beleaguered city schools.

A special commission was appointed four years ago after the city school district failed to meet adequate yearly progress for four consecutive years on the state report card.

Richard Ross, state superintendent of public instruction, now tells The Vindicator (http://bit.ly/1pclrGP ) that the city's school officials "haven't gotten done what needs to get done."

Ross calls on people in the community, including business and faith-based interests, to come together to make a "dramatic" change in the schools. He says formulas for lasting change are more effective when the community is involved.

City schools superintendent Connie Hathorn says she would support such an effort.
