At the lobby days, members will be briefed by OEA staff during a virtual morning briefing on current legislative issues and will have an opportunity to meet with state lawmakers and staff. This year is especially important as the legislature considers the Fair School Funding Plan – a plan that once fully implemented would provide about a 25% annual increase in state aid to our students, finally fixing the way Ohio funds its public schools.
The interaction of OEA members with elected officials is critical to getting the Fair School Funding Plan passed through the legislature, as well as improving other policies that impact students, educators and public education.
Join your colleagues on Zoom at 9 a.m. on each of the lobby days for a short briefing. Use the links for each day to register:
