We’re formally launching CAPEOhio.org on Saturday, October 22, 2016 at the Public Education Partners summit. The Citizen Advocates for Public Education (CAPE) organizers will be at the summit where we will give presentations in the morning and afternoon.
Frances Strickland will be joined by other CAPE organizers to share the 13 fundamental principles for public education that represent our vision for redefining public education. We hope that decision makers—students, parents, teachers, boards of education, legislators, administrators—will use these principles in developing policies and practices before it’s too late.
On Wednesday, the U.S. Department of Education released proposed regulations on assessments under the Every Student Succeeds Act. In the House of Representatives on Thursday, the House education committee approved new legislation on career and technical education (CTE) and a House appropriations subcommittee passed an education spending bill.
