EDITORIAL: TPS levy a tough sell

TOLEDO, OH (Editorial) - It looks like the TPS levy is in a tough situation.  And it probably should be.  The recently-released State of Ohio report card was not favorable, dropping the district into the Academic Watch category. 

The results can be explained away by TPS administrators from now until Election Day, but that won't change the fact that the grade went down.  

And then there is the controversy surrounding falsified attendance records.  At some point taxpayers have a right to expect the performance bar to be raised.  When do parents get to say, fix this, then we'll give you more money?
