A popular state program that allows high schoolers to take college courses at no cost needs to be reformed, according to representatives of school districts that foot the tuition and textbook bill.
About 52,000 Ohio students in grades seven through 12 took college classes during the 2015-16 school year, the first full year of the College Credit Plus program.
The program, which replaces Ohio’s previous dual-enrollment options, lets students take courses through schools such as University of Toledo, Bowling Green State University, and Owens Community College while also earning high school credit.
