MERGING EDUCATION DEPARTMENTS
The House Government Accountability and Oversight Committee recently heard testimony on House Bill 512, the proposal to merge the Ohio department of Education, the Ohio Department of Higher Education and the Governor's Office of Workforce Development into a new agency with a director appointed by the governor. Jay Smith, with the Ohio School Board Association, says it's troubling that the legislation was drafted without the consultation of organizations like the Ohio Board of Education, and others who represent teachers and public school districts.
Supporters of the legislation counter that it would ensure governors are held accountable for Ohio's education laws.
