To All of You who are concerned about Education in Ohio,
The Ohio School Boards Leadership Coalition (OSBLC) is here to support you, your children and grandchildren.
Our goal is freedom – freedom to choose the kind of education your student needs, freedom to teach instead of teaching to a test, freedom to learn instead of indoctrinate, freedom from unfunded mandates and regulations, freedom to choose the curriculum that works best for your students and your community.
One example of the problems: Our leaders have forced federally-mandated curriculum on public schools and tied the tests to it, so teachers have lost the freedom to teach and students spend their time on testing instead of learning.
To make things worse, tests have changed many times just in the last few years and scores that determine success are a constantly moving target as seen by the many poor grades on school report cards. Our children are not improving academically when compared to other states or on college entrance exams. Someone should stand against the failed status quo.
OSBLC is taking that stand. We are pushing back against the mandates and excessive regulations. We will let you know what elected officials are planning so you can voice your opinions. We provide the information your school board leaders and teachers need to get involved in creating education policy that works for every child.
To be successful – we need your help.
Parents, grandparents, school board members, teachers, taxpayers, community leaders and organizations that care about children are all invited to join with us as we make your voices heard in the statehouse and the Governor’s mansion. The politicians have experimented with education long enough. Together we can move education policy in the right direction and turn the focus back where it should be: TO OUR STUDENTS!
Please join OSBLC today!
