05.29.15 - Guest Column - House Bill 74 Would Reduce Required State Testing Hours


After hearing extensively from teachers, school administrators and parents, it is clear that our students in Ohio are overburdened by state assessments. While there is certainly a need for some school assessments to confirm that students are making progress, local control over assessments is the most efficient and effective way to ensure that students are getting a quality education. I am proud to have voted in favor of House Bill 74, which is expected to reduce total testing time by over 50 percent, while ensuring continued local control over assessments used by schools and districts.

03.31.15 - Guest Column From State Representative Bill Blessing


As your state representative, it is a top priority of mine to ensure that the children of our state are able to succeed in school. House Bill 7, sponsored by my colleague Representative Jim Buchy, would provide a “safe harbor” for school children, ensuring that there are no negative consequences for students as a result of administering new state assessments, including those from the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC).
