Don’t use funds appropriated for public schools to build Trump’s wall - Education Votes

Monies earmarked for public education, at military bases particularly, are being diverted to fulfill political promises. NEA retired member James Kellar called President Trump’s plan to build a border wall with money appropriated for public schools on military bases “unconscionable” at a press briefing organized by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI). Kellar spent 36 years...

Columbus City Schools earns "D" on state report card, out of jeopardy of takeover

OEA President Scott DiMauro explains the flawed state scoring system. Columbus City Schools avoids an academic state takeover by earning an overall D this year on the state report card. That's after the largest school district in the state climbed from an F last year which put CCS in jeopardy of academic distress. While the grade is big news for the 51,000 students en...

Congratulations, Dwayne Marshall!

Column: Ohio House bill 239 could be antidote for 'test distress'

Op-ed in today’s Columbus Dispatch by OEA President Becky Higgins. This bill is a thoughtful way to restore some balance to our classrooms by addressing overtesting while also keeping high standards. Less time spent on

Day two of the Ohio Education Association’s spring representative assembly. It’s been a big weekend. We’ve elected a new President, Vice President, two NEA directors and a seat on the OEA board of directors. Taking care of new business items today.

[05/10/19]   Congratulations, Scott DiMauro, President-elect of OEA.

Big day at the OEA RA. Today we elect a new President and Vice President.

On Wednesday, May 8, 2019 the Testing Reduction Act (HB 239) was introduced in the Ohio House. The bill, sponsored by Representatives Gayle Manning (R- North Ridgeville) and Erica Crawley (D- Columbus), is bipartisan legislation.

Key provisions in HB 239 are:

- Reduce state-mandated standardized tests to the federal minimums by eliminating four high school end-of-course exams. (Geometry, ELA I, American History, American Government)

- Require school districts to convene a local work group made up of teachers, parents and administrators to examine district-required testing and make recommendations for ways to reduce the amount of time spent by students on testing.

- Provide that the state continues to offer a paid administration of the ACT/SAT for high school juniors, but student participation would be voluntary.

Please continue to follow as this bill moves through the legislative process.

A lot of GJEA pride around our district!


RCS BOE passed a resolution opposing state school takeovers. Robert Barga tweaked the original to show the historical perspective of public education. BOE President Joe Begeny stated, “Public education is not something new, it’s not trendy. It’s the bedrock of American society.”
Proud of this group!

The superintendent praised the agreement:

“Our teachers are the core of everything we do as a school district, and we are pleased to have reached a tentative agreement that shows them how valuable they are," she said. "The contract will help ensure more teachers stay in Oakland and that more come to teach in our classrooms and support our students.” Teachers will also get a 3 percent bonus when the contract is ratified.
