Statement From OEA On The Court’s Decision To Deny A Preliminary Injunction In The Youngstown Case

COLUMBUS – October 13, 2015 – “Today’s decision will not deter us,” said OEA President Becky Higgins, “from continuing to find ways to give voice to the parents, educators and community in Youngstown who were silenced by the state takeover and who have a vital role to play in shaping the future of Youngstown’s public schools so that students have the high-quality education they deserve.”

‘We also remain concerned that the school-takeover provisions that were enacted could be applied to other districts in the state.”
