If the academic commission has been in place since 2010, why isn't there the improvement they were supposed to bring? And why am I doing the Vindicator's job?

What's the problem? The charter schools who don't have to report are no different than Kasich's JobsOhio, which also isn't subject to public scrutiny even though they are funded with taxpayer dollars. The silence is deafening on that so there isn't likely to be any noise made over charter schools. The public gets what they deserve.

Fitzgerald also needs to present himself as an alternative to the extremist Kasich, who will be even more extreme if he wins re-election (you hear that union members?). I tend to agree with Knightcap. What's the plan Ed? You have my vote because I could never vote for Kasich (and didn't the first time), especially after what he did with SB5. But I would vote for anyone other than Kasich for that reason. There may not be enough people who think like I do but I can't imagine the 2 million plus voters who recalled SB5 will forget about it that quickly. Kasich is toxic to Ohio politics. Ed needs to articulate an alternative plan that voters want to embrace.

Why is it that atheists are so angry all the time? If you don't believe, you have that right. No one said you have to believe in God. Even God says that. And he still loves you.

Good article @questionreality. Maybe it will help to open some eyes. Integrity is doing what you should when no one is looking. If that incident is any indicator, Akron can have Tressel.

Why would hiring Jim Tressel as university president make YSU a football powerhouse? What's he going to do? Run over to Beeghly between trustee meetings and give pointers to Wolford? Oh, he would probably lend support, as he would be expected to do in all departments, but he wouldn't be likely to interfere and he definitely wouldn't have time to deal with football minutia. YSU football is fun to watch but I'm sorry. It never has been and never will be the caliber of an Ohio State, etc. regardless how many times the AD sacrifices a game a year for the money by playing such schools. Stop measuring success in sports terms. That would be a good start.

Sounds like to me that with the release of that information, Tressel is playing both ends against the middle. Money talks so just raise tuition some more to make him a million dollar offer he can't refuse. What a circus.

Kasich is trying to remake himself just in time for the election. He would have you believe that he should be canonized because "...a big part of my responsibility on earth..." And while he's doling out his blessings, he's closing the books on public scrutiny of JobsOhio because he knows better and the public doesn't. What are you hiding Johnny?

Kasich is a piece of work. Does he even own a tie? Or a comb? He looks like he just got out of bed. And that's the point. Kasich always has, always will be, about one thing - Kasich. His dress and demeanor speaks volumes about what he thinks about the Mahoning Valley. Senate Bill 5 looms large. Everyone who helped to repeal that garbage legislation supported by the buffoon Kasich are just waiting for the November election. Pay back is a biatch. I can see the yard signs now: "ABK for Ohio Governor" (Anyone but Kasich). In the meantime, everyone needs to be asking Johnny Kasich what he is hiding at JobsOhio.

So I guess that instead of making a donation to YSU next year, I'll just have to bear the cost of the tuition increase instead.
