State Ignoring the Public’s Wishes

In a joint letter to the Ohio Department of Education (ODE), a group of superintendents (mostly from Lorain County) questioned on Monday ODE’s avoidance of any real changes the public sought in its proposed state education plan under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).  In their letter, the superintendents said that residents made it clear in a series of public meetings and surveys late last year that they wanted less testing of students, changes to state report cards and more stable expectations from year to year.  In an interview today with the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Olmsted Falls City Schools Superintendent Jim Lloyd talks about their concern that the state is ignoring the public’s wishes in its ESSA plan.
