Ohio parents and other supporters of public schools–which enroll the vast majority of the state’s children–convened a conference and came away believing that their revolution has just begun. They are waking up the resistance to the destruction and privatization of public education.

They understand that Ohio schools need change, not privatization. They need equitable funding and fewer mandates. They need experienced teachers who are respected. They need real regulation and oversight of privately managed charters.

They say, “Build It and They Will Come.” They mean build the resistance to the steamrollers launched by John Kasich and his puppet Legislature, and parents will fight for their children and their communities.
