OEA Announces Member Lobby Day Dates
Our first lobby day on March 18th will focus on charter school reform. OEA President Becky Higgins recently testified before the House Education Committee where she urged members to make three key provisions part of any reform bill – close failing charters more expeditiously, hold charter schools to the same public disclosure law as any other public entity, and revise the funding of charters so it doesn’t deprive local school districts of needed resources.
Join us for OEA’s next Member Lobby Day on Wednesday, March 18, 2015.
To RSVP, please email Julie Parsley at firstname.lastname@example.org. A briefing from OEA's lobbyists will begin at 9:00 a.m. in the Media Center at OEA Headquarters (225 East Broad Street, Columbus, 43215). Parking is available at nearby surface lots, in the parking garage just south of the OEA building or at parking meters located on 5th & Broad Streets.
