Ohio's top education official has apologized for an anti-gun-control Facebook posting using a photo of Adolf Hitler – but some state school board members say she must go further.

Ohio Board of Education President Debe Terhar opened Monday's meeting saying she's sorry and understands anything she does may find its way into the public domain.

The statement satisfied board member C. Todd Jones, who said the flap should end here. Other members said she's compared President Barack Obama to a "monstrous killer" and should resign.

Terhar has acknowledged she made a mistake by sharing a photo of the Nazi leader on Facebook while criticizing Obama's new gun-control efforts. She maintains she wasn't trying to compare Obama to Hitler.
