A powerful group of Ohio's state representatives must think a lot of you are bad teachers because they are rewriting Ohio's teacher evaluation law to put more of you on an "improvement plan." On top of that, once again they are eliminating your collective bargaining rights, this time around evaluations.
See the changes and send your state representative a letter.

Thoughtful educators, parents and even policymakers are determined to tame this beast and put testing where it belongs: where it can be used as a diagnostic tool, rather than as a threat hanging over the heads of students and the teachers trying desperately to reach them in more effective, meaningful ways.
