Questions on Ohio private school regulations

Bishop Sycamore

If their football team hadn't lost during a nationally televised game, it might still be business as usual for an Ohio high school that calls itself Bishop Sycamore. 

But the players donned their uniforms, challenged IMG Academy of Florida and lost 58-0.

On Sunday, ESPN commentators questioned the school's claim to have multiple Division I prospects on its roster. On Monday, the school's academics came under scrutiny. On Tuesday, Gov. Mike DeWine called for an investigation into whether Bishop Sycamore ever met Ohio's minimum education standards.

And on Wednesday, Republican and Democratic state lawmakers started asking whether the rules governing this particular kind of private school needed to change. 

"I think what we should do is let the Department of Education look into this, see what the issues were and make recommendations to the General Assembly ...," Sen. Andrew Brenner, R-Delaware, said. And if legal changes are necessary, "I will take the lead."
