Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

Minority Students Slipping Behind

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A new report says black children are faring worse in Ohio than all but five other states.
   An index that compares milestones for kids across racial and ethnic groups shows black, Latino and American Indian children scoring well below whites in every region of the country.
   The index - compiled by the Annie E. Casey Foundation and reported by The Columbus Dispatch - shows just five states, all in the South or Midwest, posting lower scores for black children than Ohio.
   The report looks at how children are faring on milestones that position them for success. It uses 12 indicators, including birth-weight data, reading and math proficiency, and neighborhood poverty.
   The Children's Defense Fund-Ohio called the state's results for black children "dire."

Guardsman Guilty, He Says

 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An Indiana Guardsman is ready to plead guilty to having homemade explosive devices in his vehicle when he was stopped in Ohio.
   Andrew Boguslawski faces 10 years in prison after signing an agreement to plead guilty to having nine unregistered bombs found in his vehicle and four devices that could be converted to bombs. He is also pleading guilty to having 20 explosive devices or components at his Indiana home.
   Boguslawski is scheduled to enter his guilty plea today before a federal magistrate in Columbus.
   His attorney has said Boguslawski had the illegal devices but never planned to use them to strike anyone or anything and planned to use them for legitimate training purposes.
   An Ohio trooper stopped Boguslawski on Jan. 1 for speeding on Interstate 70 west of Columbus.

AKRON, Ohio (AP) - A newspaper is reporting taxpayers are largely footing the bill for public school buses that have to drive farther to transport students attending charter schools.
   State officials have forced traditional public schools to traverse their cities to pick up and deliver kids to privately run charter schools, often while cutting transportation to their own kids.
   The Akron Beacon-Journal has analyzed statewide data and has determined it costs about 44 percent more per child to deliver the charter school attendees door to door.
   A child attending a traditional public school and transported on a district bus cost on average $4.30 per day in 2012. For a charter-school student, it was $6.18, or $1.88 more per day.
   Since then, 22,000 more kids have been enrolled at the state's charter schools.
