A quote from Kenna O’Sullivan from Action for Mason Education or Action4OhioEducation facebook: “Once this bill is introduced on Monday 5/18, there are only 5-6 weeks left before their Session is out for THREE MONTHS… If this bill doesn’t get somewhere between now and then, there is no hope for anything to significantly change before school starts again in the fall.We need to urge our state legislators AND OUR LOCAL Board of Education and superintendent to support this bill so that we can get back to being the amazing district we were before this garbage was heaped on us…where our children were learning ALL year and weren’t stressed out about tests that will serve no purpose other than hurt our teachers and give the big testing companies more money…a district where our fabulous teachers don’t have the shackles of these harsh state mandates on their hands…where our schools are a happy place again. Our children and our teachers deserve to be happy and they deserve to thrive. Until this governmental overreach stops, that is not going to happen. Making due isn’t good enough!!”
