12.07.18 - Rep. Fedor Applauds Decision To Extend Alternative Graduation Pathways

 

State Rep. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) today announced the Ohio House recently passed Senate changes to House Bill 491, which extend alternative pathways to graduation for 2019 and 2020 Ohio high school seniors.

“Superintendents, teachers and students of the Class of 2019 and 2020: the state legislators heard you, and recognized the need to change and adapt our graduation requirements for your future success,” said Rep. Fedor, ranking member on House Education and Career Readiness Committee. “We still have a lot more work to do to get Ohio’s graduation requirements to match the real-world, but we will work together to do this and I look forward to that.”

 
 

12.04.18 - Rep. Teresa Fedor's HB 440 Will Receive Second Public Testimony In Insurance Committee

 

State Rep. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) announced House Bill (HB) 440, legislation to establish a single-payer healthcare plan to universally cover medical, dental and vision services, will receive its second committee hearing tomorrow, Wednesday, December 5 at 9:30 a.m. in House Insurance Committee. This is the first universal health care coverage bill to have a second hearing since the 125th General Assembly.

“Healthcare prices are rapidly increasing in Ohio. Wages are going nowhere. Ohioans have to spend a greater percentage of their hard-earned money on healthcare. That’s not freedom,” said Fedor. “Expensive medical bills can be the difference between bankruptcy and the American Dream of retirement, home ownership, sending a kid to college, or starting a family.”

09.13.18 - 2018 Ohio School Report Cards Fail To Account For Local Perspective

 

Today the State of Ohio released the 2018 annual Ohio School Report Cards. State Rep. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo), the House Democratic Caucus education lead, believes we need a new state report card system to assess student performance and other measures for school districts.

“Local control and the local perspective is needed to adequately determine the success or growth opportunities for Ohio’s students and educators,” said Rep. Fedor. “Ohio has many different communities. There is no one size fits all approach. We need to be more responsive and responsible in issuing grade cards.”

According to the Ohio Association of Comprehensive and Compact Career Technical Schools (Ohio CCS), Ohio has 91 Career Technical Planning Districts and three career-technical delivery models at the secondary education level focusing on workforce development. The “Prepared for Success” component of the CTE Report Card, however, only includes credentials related to “Ohio’s In-Demand Occupations.” Institutions successfully preparing students for careers will be penalized with low component grades, even if students obtain the knowledge and skills necessary to enter the workforce.

“The current report cards unfairly punish schools, students, and Ohio’s economy,” said Fedor.

Pointing to the role poverty can play in academic performance, Rep. Fedor said the Ohio School Report Cards A-F measurement doesn’t accurately reflect whether administrators and educators are working hard to address the complex challenges within their buildings.
