Ohio's Teachers Oppose Issue 2

Ohio Senate Bill 5 will restrict teachers' rights to bargain collectively to advocate for the best interests of our students. The teacher evaluations mandated by this bill will require more standardized tests for our children in more subject areas. Teachers can and should be evaluated, but the focus of these evaluations should not be standardized test scores. The focus of teacher evaluations should be on the professional practice of educators--not the standardized test scores of students. Vote No on Issue 2 to repeal Senate Bill 5 and do what is best for Ohio's children.
