State Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) today was named a 2015 Friend of Public Education by the Ohio Federation of Teachers (OFT). The OFT cited the Lorain lawmaker’s work on legislation to protect teachers’ pensions, as well as his ongoing, informed and passionate advocacy for effective education policy.

“I am honored to receive the Friend of Public Education Award from the OFT,” said Ramos. “It means a lot to me to receive such an honor from an incredible group of people, who work each and every day to provide a quality education to children and young adults across the state. I look forward to continuing to fight alongside them for the best interests of Ohio’s students. I thank them for the award and, more importantly, for all the work they continue to do.”

Each year, the Ohio Federation of Teachers recognizes those who have helped advance the interests of teachers and students in Ohio. The awards are given out to people or groups who act to lift up sound, commonsense public education policy across Ohio. This year’s award recipients were recognized at OFT’s annual conference in Columbus.

The Ohio Federation of Teachers is a union of professionals representing 20,000 members in 55 locals across the state that include public school educators and support staff, higher education faculty and support staff, and public employees. OFT focuses on issues at the statewide level that include legislation, public policy and education policy, communications and political advocacy.

Ramos Proposes Tuition Coverage For Ohio College Students


As Ohio college students don their caps and gowns this month, many will leave school with mountains of debt for four-year degrees. In fact, Ohio families and students face the highest burden of student loan debt in the nation, with the Buckeye State ranking 45th nationally for college affordability. With college out of reach for too many families and students, state Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) today introduced legislation to cover 90 percent of the cost for students to attend public college in Ohio. The Ohio Lets Everyone Achieve Right Now (LEARN) tax credit would make Ohio the first state to make college truly affordable for all students.
