OH Rep. Calls for Lawmakers Involvement in ESSA Plan

September 21, 2017

ESSA grants states “control to determine academic standards, and Republican Ohio House of Representatives member Theresa Gavarone wants lawmakers to have the final say in what the Ohio Department of Education comes up with.” Gavarone says, “We’ve been elected by our constituents and as representatives we should have a say when policies are created that affects our educational system.”

If Gavarone’s bill is passed and signed into law, “legislators could block the implementation of an ESSA plan if legislators disapprove of it.”
