Former congressman and gubernatorial candidate Jim Renacci reacted to the Tuesday morning news that the Ohio School Board Association (OSBA) was severing ties with the National School Board Association (NSBA).
“Ohio parents and children are suffering because Mike DeWine has done nothing to protect them from the onslaught of unconstitutional COVID mandates and dangerous CRT indoctrination all across the state,” Renacci said in a statement. “Whether it is his Vax-2-School scam or appointing 7 out of 8 members of the Ohio school board who voted to approve CRT in our schools, DeWine’s assault on our children can no longer stand. As your governor, I will never impose any unconstitutional mandates and I will stop CRT from brainwashing our children in the classroom.”
After the Ohio School Boards Association (OSBA) made waves Tuesday morning by officially cutting ties with the National School Boards Association (NSBA), the Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) remains silent.
Asked if they would follow suit, the VSBA did not return The Virginia Star’s comment request.
Tuesday, the Ohio School Boards Association (OSBA) terminated its affiliation with the National School Boards Association (NSBA), first reported by The Highland County Press.
The decision was made by OSBA’s Board of Trustees.
Bipartisan bills in the Ohio state House and Senate would allow last school year’s high-school seniors to voluntarily re-enroll in the fall, allowing them a second chance after a school year decimated by COVID-19 lockdown measures.
“Under a measure introduced this week by GOP Sen. Andrew Brenner, of Delaware, and Democratic Sen. Teresa Fedor, of Toledo, students who just finished their senior year could re-enroll in 12th grade this fall to take the same classes and get another round of eligibility for sports,” Associated Press reported.
