A resounding "yes" to the Common Core

  • The Cincinnati Enquirer published five op-eds on the Common Core. Chad Aldis argued that the Common Core is the “right thing to do for Ohio schoolchildren.” Mary Ronan, superintendent of Cincinnati Public Schools, was also on point: “Are the new standards good for our students? — my answer and that of most of our teachers is a resounding ‘yes.’”
  • In a cost-saving measure, Columbus City Schools rolled out plans to close seven schools. A boisterous public meeting at East High School drew protests, tears, and pleas to save the schools. We wonder, however, where the outrage was when these very schools received low ratings over the past several years.
  • AP versus dual enrollment takes center stage in Northwest Ohio: Lima High School, Lima Central Catholic, and Memorial High School in St. Mary’s have scrapped their AP courses in favor of dual enrollment, a program whereby high-school students take a college-level course certified by a local college or university.
