Yes! I stand with Columbus Teachers. Together, we’re fighting for The Schools #ColumbusStudentsDeserve

Decades of Disinvestment

Every Columbus student deserves a world-class education. In a booming, resource-rich city like Columbus, it’s no accident they don’t have it yet. Led by powerful developers, corporate interests, and politicians, our Columbus City Schools administration for years has pursued policies of disinvestment, school closings, and the transfer of our public resources to private interests.

What We are Fighting For

  • Columbus Students Deserve the resources they need to be successful. At the bargaining table, CEA has introduced proposals for reduced class sizes, manageable caseloads, meaningful streamlined report cards, adequate student support staffing, and expanded access to art, music, and P.E.
  • Columbus Students Deserve a community invested in their success. At the bargaining table, CEA has introduced proposals for evidence-based transformation of our schools into Community Learning Centers driven by student, parent, and community needs, transparency on tax abatement policy, the maintenance and expansion of CEA Social Emotional Learning Practitioner positions, and safe CCS campuses.
  • Columbus Students Deserve a district that attracts and retains the best educators. At the bargaining table, CEA has introduced proposals for attracting and retaining the best educators with competitive wages, affordable benefits, additional planning and preparation time, embedded quality professional development, and modern leave policies.

I am standing with Columbus teachers by joining the #ColumbusStudentsDeserve movement!
