I will be in Columbus, Ohio, tomorrow, for a public discussion with Bill Phillis sponsored by Public Education Partners at the Sheraton Hotel in Columbus, Capitol Square, 6 pm.


Bill Phillis reports:

State Board of Education adopted a resolution stating the Board does not support HB 70 of the 131st General Assembly
The State Board of Education unanimously passed a resolution indicating the Board does not support HB 70. The resolution was adopted after hearing testimony from representatives of Lorain, East Cleveland and Youngstown. Thanks to Board member Nick Owens for forwarding a copy of the resolution.
The Ohio House of Representatives enacted legislation that essentially would repeal HB 70 with only a handful of no votes. Then the House amended the HB 70 repeal bill into the House version of the budget.
The Senate should leave the repeal language in the budget. HB 70 has been an embarrassment to Ohio and thus needs to be buried out of sight.
