Ohio public schools are in their third week of issuing standardized tests for students in grades  four through eight, and high school. The state legislature passed a law one year ago that eliminates any ramifications for the pupils in this first year of the test. But that hasn’t calmed down members of the state board of education at their meeting this week.

The state of Cincinnati Public Schools is good but challenges are expected moving forward. That's the message today from Superintendent Mary Ronan.

CPS is transitioning this year to Ohio's new Common Core standards program.
