Elected officials enact policies that affect our students, our schools and the daily lives of educators. Decisions regarding school funding, services, curriculum standards, licensure, class sizes and evaluations are all made by elected officials. As Ohio’s legislators consider policies that affect public education, it is critical that they hear from educators—the true experts on education issues. As teachers, faculty and education support professionals, OEA members have an obligation to get involved in these decisions and make their voices heard.
Being informed is half the battle.
