Public education is subject to an increasing number of proposals which can be either beneficial or detrimental to Ohio’s children.  These measures are prevalent in Columbus and in Washington, D.C.  We need to be vigilant in promoting and protecting the interests of our members and the children.

Elected and appointed decision-makers affect the quality of your life.  Every decision about every brick, every book, and education employee is made by persons elected to public office or appointed or hired by those persons.  Educational decisions are political decisions.

Do you believe your voice should be heard?  The OEA and NEA Cyber-Lobbying programs provide the vehicle to allow us to be heard effectively in Columbus and Washington.  As we have seen, a chorus of voices is hard to ignore.
