OEA Says ECOT Students Will be Welcomed in Local Public Schools

The President of the Ohio Education Association, Becky Higgins, said today that parents who are disappointed by the closing of the state’s largest online charter school, the Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow, should consider their local public schools as a viable option for their children.

“I think parents will find a hospitable environment in local public schools,” said Higgins, “where students are taught by dedicated professionals who care deeply about serving the educational needs of the children in their classrooms.  Local public schools provide a stimulating experience for students where they are given every opportunity to reach their full potential. OEA encourages ECOT parents to take a look for themselves.”

The Ohio Education Association (ohea.org) represents 124,000 teachers, faculty members and support professionals in Ohio’s public schools, colleges and universities
