Ohio’s 2018 District Report Cards Incomplete, Misleading

Columbus, OH — September 13, 2018 | "...a student’s zip code can predict a family’s financial security and significant obstacles to their educational success — before ever stepping a foot into a classroom or school.

OEA Applauds Cordray’s Education Plan

(September 12, 2018—Columbus) OEA Pres. Becky Higgins: “We believe Rich Cordray has a student-centered agenda that makes public education a top priority. He has an impressive understanding of the key education issues Ohio’s next Governor will face — from the need to invest in support services, ending the reliance on high-stakes, standardized tests, to reining in poorly performing charter schools.”

Where was Mike DeWine to Rein in ECOT?
OEA: Should We Believe What DeWine Says About Education or What He’s Actually Done?

Where was DeWine to rein in ECOT? DeWine was voting against funding programs that would have benefited Ohio's public schools! We think a better bet for ensuring that every student and educator in Ohio has the resources and support they need to succeed is to vote for Richard Cordray for Governor.
