COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich is preparing to sign a sweeping education bill that seeks to strengthen ties between the state's employers and public schools and makes dozens of other policy changes.
Kasich is to sign the bill Monday in Cincinnati. The event takes place at Fifth Third Bank's operations center in Madisonville.
Under the measure, Ohio third-graders lagging in reading skills face the possibility of being held back for up to two school years as they get academic help. It sets adjusted training and retesting requirements for teachers who are deemed to be ineffective for two of the previous three years. The legislation also requires all special needs students to get eye exams.
At the signing, the Republican governor will emphasize changes detailing workforce education with available jobs.
