Ohio Board of Education members will wait until the fall to consider a resolution that proposes some drastic changes to the state report cards for schools and school districts. A delay on the resolution doesn’t mean the end of discussions about potential modifications.
The bad grades for many school districts in the latest round of report cards has upset some parents and school officials. And now they’ve angered a state lawmaker who says he’s writing a bill to change the report cards.
The Ohio Department of Education plans to release its state school report cards Thursday morning and state leaders are telling parents, students and educators to brace themselves for significantly lower than usual grades.
