Members of the Ohio Education Association (OEA) voted unanimously at their December 7th Representative Assembly to recommend a set of comprehensive reforms to the state report card system.
“It is past time to end the use of confusing and misleading state report cards in Ohio,” said OEA President Scott DiMauro. “We need a new report card system that is fair, informative and transparent.”

“Sadly, the legislature leaves the communities of Youngstown, Lorain and East Cleveland languishing under a failing law until they can figure out how to give districts struggling with high levels of poverty the support they need,” said OEA President Scott DiMauro
We like the approach taken by HB 154 to repeal HB 70 and restore local control, and which recently passed the House with strong bipartisan support (83-12). We urge the Senate to keep this budget language as part of HB 154.
OEA elects two new officers: Scott DiMauro to a three-year term as President, and Jeff Wensing to a three-year term as Vice President. Both will take office on July 15, 2019.
The overwhelming support shown in the Ohio House of Representatives for House Bill 154 is a clear sign that the law that allows the state to takeover local school districts that are deemed to be in trouble is not working and needs to be repealed.
“Today we sent a message, loud and clear, that we’re serious about winning the schools Columbus Students Deserve” said Regina Fuentes, teacher at Eastmoor Academy High School. “As front-line educators, we see firsthand how our students struggle without the learning conditions, staffing, resources, and supports they need to succeed.”
On behalf of our 122,000 members, I am Becky Higgins, President of the Ohio Education Association. The state takeover and the resulting loss of local control in Youngstown, Lorain and East Cleveland schools has not helped the students in those districts.
