It appears that Gov. John Kasich's 3rd Grade Reading Guarantee is already creating problems. With budget cuts made by the governor to schools, less staff, and inadequate direction from the state, the program is doomed for failure with teachers ultimately being blamed for any potential problems.
The ToledoBlade describes the problems that districts will face because of the lack of financial support from the Kasich administration. Besides the lack of money, Kasich & Co. just don't understand the fundamentals of education. Period.
> Several news outlets are noting the campaign contributions of one union to the re-election of John Kasich. It is only one union and we'll see if other union members remember SB5.
PolicyMic has this about how Kasich's support comes from ALEC--
...The governor and at least two top Ohio state officials share alumnus status with the developer of that agenda – ALEC.
Kasich pushed for privatized education – K-12 through college – accomplished through cuts to education spending, signed legislation allowing fracking, and slashed funding for the Ohio Consumer’s Counsel (OCC) which has interfered with Duke Energy’s attempts to pass along storm damage repairs to their customers.
