I think Kasich is trying to boost Ohio economoy - and that is a good thing. However, a few things for Ohio:
1. Don't cut State Prison programs or delinquent programs. The state arrests criminals, holds court and convicts criminals, it should bear the expense to detain them. The minimal primary function of the government is to protect the public and to enforce the law. These areas should be maintained to the last. In addition, repeat offenders go out and victimize more people. Keep them locked up - protect the public.
2. Get off the 'bash the teachers' bandwagon for why the schools are failing. Its not the teachers. If you switch the teachers with the worst failing district with the teachers from the most highly rated school, you would not turn the failing school around. It might even get worse, who knows.
Schools are operating on the old dogma of req'd # of hrs per day, Req'd # of days per year. that was in place before the OGT, and before all this scrutiny. Free the schools - let them innovate. Let the schools set up an accreditation association in alignment with the colleges. You would see hundreds of different models that could then compare with one another. Let the schools evaluate their teachers. The only thing the State has to do is administer a Reading, Language Usage, Writing, and Mathematical Computations Test for students to graduate. Say to the schools: here is your test, get the students to pass it. Then let them go be educational professionals and innovate programs rather than work under the oppressive structure that is now being set-up.

In districts like Strongsville, the problem most certainly is the teachers. Not that the kids are failing; that the kids are exposed to allegedly grown adult role models acting like Bolsheviks. Immature leftists like that bunch are a perfect example of the type of "educators" who richly earn their own bashing.

I think any reform in public education is a good thing.

I'm a landlord and frequently use Craig's List to find tenants. Some of the e-mail replies I get are frightening, particularly from black applicants.

To read these e-mails and not know any better, you would swear that they were written by 9 year olds. Many of them I delete because I have no idea WTF they are trying to tell or ask me.

Just for fun, I contact some of them and let them see the apartment. I usually strike up a conversation about the schools in our area, and to my surprise, many of these people graduated high school.

You can't say this is not the teachers fault. Well....... maybe you can, but it certainly is the unions fault. Teachers pass these kids right up the line to graduation so they don't have to admit failure. It would be no different than your employer allowing you to fill out your annual job evaluation.

If I'm not willing to rent them an apartment based on their letters to me, how are they going to find any meaningful employment? I think about this from time to time, especially when I hear figures like the black unemployment rate is almost twice the national unemployment rate.

It's all over the news, douche, even here...unlike your ability (or lack of) to form an opinion about Columbus schools from Akron.
The behavior of the Strongsville teachers as seen on YouTube alone pretty much sums up their attitude.

Staff wants more money, "step increases"

Board has no money because citizens don't want higher taxes, BOE tells union to pound salt.

Union goes on strike and commits crimes.

I was just going to respond to him with exactly what you said. Many of them include their names on the bottom of their e-mails. I can't say they are all black, but I doh't know many white guys with a name like Lashon Williams III. LOL!

I suppose you think it's all about "the cause of solidarity" and "fascist union busting."
It's about money and angry taxpayers who are smarter than the union and its lemmings.

Whatever they are, they are all pretty low. Now city by city, different schools might have different standards. People who pay outrageous property taxes are expecting many of their young citizenry to be off to college once they graduate--and not community colleges either.

My sister sent her kids to private schools their entire life. My nephew graduated last year and my niece will graduate next year. Both did exceptionally well grade wise.

But I guess when you're shelling out much of your income for schooling, you make sure you're getting your monies worth. My niece slipped up a few times, and my sister sat down with her every night making sure she got back on track real quick.

Not all public school parents do that for their child. Once that kid is on the bus, it's not their problem if or how their children learn. I think that if we adjusted our property taxes so that those with children in the public schools pay much more than those who don't have kids in school, maybe those parents would get more involved too.
