Starting Point for a Much-needed Conversation

Bath Local Schools Superintendent Dale Lewellen has joined a growing number of superintendents who are leading a statewide initiative to provide Ohio’s citizens with a stronger voice in shaping education policy in the Buckeye state.  Tuesday night, he shared the education documentary, “Rise Above the Mark,” with the members of his Board of Education.  The documentary was created by Rocky Killion, superintendent of the West Lafayette School Corporation in West Lafayette, Indiana, to alert the general public about what he calls the “corporate takeover” of our nation’s public schools.  In addition, Dale gave his Board members copies of America’s Schools at a Turning Point:  And how we THE PEOPLE can help shape their future and will lead a book discussion with them this spring or early summer.  He explained that “this is simply a starting point for a much-needed frank and open conversation with the citizens of our school district about how the education reform movement is impacting our school system and community.”
