The Word Is Spreading
The word is spreading thanks to a committed network of Ohio school superintendents who believe it is time for their citizens to take back local control of their schools. Last Tuesday, Lorain County ESC Superintendent Greg Ring met with the superintendents in Medina County and discussed the work of the Ohio Public School Advocacy Network which has been formed to give citizens a stronger voice in shaping education policy in the Buckeye state. Greg said the Medina County superintendents were very supportive and want to get involved by joining forces with the Lorain County superintendents. In addition, Vandalia-Butler City Schools Superintendent Brad Neavin met yesterday with the superintendents in Preble County and invited them to join the OPSAN initiative. Next Friday, he will be meeting with Darke County’s superintendents. Brad’s message is: “It is time for superintendents throughout the state to get on board this critically important effort to take back our local schools.” He added that Montgomery County’s superintendents and their school board presidents will be meeting soon to discuss the work of OPSAN.
