(COLUMBUS, OH, MARCH 5, 2019)
Ohio Education Association President Becky Higgins today offered warm words for Governor Mike DeWine’s first state of the state address.
“It is clear from his speech that Governor DeWine cares about Ohio’s children and is ready to do what it takes to support our students,” said OEA President Becky Higgins.
“I want to thank the Governor for his recognition of Ohio’s dedicated teachers and the important role they play in the lives of their students. Too often, this is left unsaid by state leaders.”
“OEA members share the Governor’s commitment to expanding early childhood education, wrap-around services and providing additional resources to meet student needs.”
Higgins also added: “We look forward to working with the Governor and state legislators to achieve these shared goals.”
