“The state budget deal imposing a moratorium on new Academic Distress Commissions tacitly admits what educators, parents and students have known all along—that state takeovers don’t work. Sadly, the legislature leaves the communities of Youngstown, Lorain and East Cleveland languishing under a failing law until they can finally figure out how to give districts struggling with high levels of poverty the support they need. As we continue the fight to pass HB 154 to repeal state takeovers and restore local control, I am deeply disappointed in the decision to allow CEOs to continue wreaking havoc on our schools.”
