COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Members of an Ohio teacher's union are dropping in on state legislators to air their concerns about new teacher evaluations and other changes in the Gov. John Kasich's (KAY--siks) proposed budget.
The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (http://bit.ly/XF6dQ5 ) reports that members of the Ohio Federation of Teachers — in Columbus of the union's annual convention — fanned out to let lawmakers know how their classrooms would suffer as the result of Kasich's funding plan and the diversion of more public money to private-school vouchers.
Union President Melissa Cropper criticized the evaluation system that will be introduced later this year. She said it relies too heavily on the results of an annual state test designed to help students improve rather than judge their teachers.
