Some Coumbus Schools Staff Risk Loss Of Certification

The state says about 60 educators in Columbus city schools could lose their licenses because of the recent attendance data-scrubbing scandal. An Ohio Department of Education spokeswoman says the agency sent letters in two batches to educators this month alerting them that they are being investigated. The letters offer them a chance to give up their state licenses to end the investigation. It's unlikely that teachers are among those who received letters because they haven't been implicated in improperly altering data to manipulate the school's performance ratings. New state report cards are being issued for the Columbus, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Toledo districts for 2011-12 because an investigation found data scrubbing.
