CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland public schools' reform plan is stalled out in the Ohio legislature and in jeopardy.

Mayor Frank Jackson held a new conference Wednesday in an effort to pressure the legislature to act on the reform plan.

He will be in Columbus today and says his plan was for the Ohio House to vote on the plan.  The mayor says he expects the vote to take place.

Part of the holdup in the legislature is concern over how charter schools will be reviewed by a local panel -- before they open in Cleveland.

The plan also addresses seniority in layoffs, closing failing schools and sharing property tax dollars with charter schools.
