This is an all-call upon every member who can and will, to join their brothers and sisters in Lorain for a strong showing of solidarity.
The Lorain Academic Distress Commission (ADC) will meet 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 19, 2019, at General Johnnie Wilson Middle School, 2700 Washington Ave., Lorain, OH 44052.
The Lorain state takeover is NOT working for the school district, its educators, or the students we care about.
This is the first meeting with the newly appointed ADC chair, Randall Sampson.
This is an important opportunity for us to get directly in front of the Commission! As educators, we need to show we mean it when we say HB70 is nothing more than an attack on public education and labor rights. Accordingly, the Lorain state takeover is NOT working for the school district, its educators, or the students we care about.
It’s important that YOU join us in solidarity with Lorain City Mayor Chase Ritenauer, who has called on all city police and fire that aren’t on duty that night to attend as well as other local and statewide unions.
Moreover, ADC needs to hear it from YOU that Lorain’s citizens want to be in control of their own school district.
With the public nature of the disastrous Lorain High School plan, education-friendly state legislators will soon introduce Repeal and Replace HB70 legislation.
It is important that we all join this fight now for our students, our rights, and the future of public education. | #OverTestedOH
