FBI investigates Tenn.-based CCA prison company

Fantastic! Let's turn our schools over to private for profit businesses too. Oh wait...

Ask your lawyer why there was no school.

Enrollment opens to ease budget woes

It would be nice if someone would explain that the $5700 is taken from the home district regardless of what the state gives a home district in revenue. Therefore if your home district receives $2500 from the state and a student leaves your district for an open enrollment district or charter school they still take $5700 from your district. That makes sense right? If money really followed a student EVERY student should get $5700 from the start.

Ohio searches for that elusive set of tests that does it all

Many students arrive at college and are in need of remediation because they shouldn't be in college in the first place. Just because students aren't prepared for college doesn't mean schools are failing our students or that we need more tests and different standards. Somewhere along the line we lost sight of the fact that college isn't for everyone. Bring back our manufactoring and quit selling higher education to everyone. Remember they're trying to make a buck too, so the more students they have the more money they make even if it takes 2 or 3 semesters to realize the kid isn't college material. Follow the money. There's money in testing and changing curriculum requires new materials. All of which makes somebody rich. Just like selling people on the notion that everyone needs to go to college.

Teachers institute ‘work to rule’ plan

I'm not sure you really get it. No one is doing anything illegal or breeching any part of their contract. They are doing exactly what they have been hired to do. They are fulfilling their contracts and doing exactly what it calls for them to do - no more but also no less. You act as though taking a stand and trying to demand action from the administration is a crime. Maybe some of you may actually begin to realize how much our teachers do everyday above and beyond what is actually required of them. The old saying never judge a man until you walk in his shoes exist for a reason. Just because you went to school or have children that attend school does not make you an expert in the work our dedicated teachers do ALL year.

Themes emerge for Kasich reform of school funding

"Allowing funding to follow the students if they wind up at nontraditional schools."

Alarm bells should sound in the ears of anyone with common sense. Why nontraditional schools? The translation of this should read: "We'll continue to steal money away from middleclass Ohioan tax payers and give it to our wealthy campaign contributors who run charter schools."

If money following the student is what Columbus wants then that's where the sentence should stop. Money will follow the student. Period. That includes suburban kids whose parents continue to pay out more in taxes than ever return to their local district. Certainly educating all students is important, but I can't believe it's that difficult to figure out the funding. Unless of course you're trying to make someone rich under the guise of education funding reform.

What’s in store as Ohio replaces graduation test?

Maybe everyone isn't supposed to go to college and that's why they're not college ready despite getting a diploma.

Poland officials hope 4th try succeeds

This statement says alot about you.

"Let me say it again, given what this staff has enjoyed while the rest of the world has been in recession, all possible cuts should be made before coming to the taxpayer."

Just out of curiosity. Complete this sentence for me. If it were up to me teachers would make $____________ per year.

No change, no levy support

You don’t read very well. I never said those issues can’t be a part of the solution. I’ve maintained they can’t be the ONLY solution. It is tiresome to hear the same people fixate on the same thing giving the impression that it alone would solve all the ills. I’m asking everyone to be part of fixing the whole problem not just one piece.
