Ohio Public School Advocacy Network Expanding

Last week, 25 superintendents from nine counties in northwest Ohio met and decided to join the statewide grass roots initiative being led by the Ohio Public School Advocacy Network to take back local control of Ohio’s schools.  According to Bath Local Schools Superintendent Dale Lewellen who hosted the meeting: “We are organizing as a group in an effort to educate our communities about the impact of recent legislation, both positive and negative, on the public schools in our region.  In addition to conducting a regional public opinion survey, we will begin sharing information with our communities concerning three main topics:  state funding to ineffective educational options (i.e. charters, private autism providers, etc.), College Credit Plus, and student testing.  We agreed that all communication will be crafted in such a way as to recognize the good that has come from these initiatives while also educating the public about their negative aspects and stating our intent to work productively with the good people in our legislative body to improve education in Ohio. We believe this improvement will largely come through restoration of control to local school boards and other state governmental entities.”
