CAPE Ohio invited the candidates for Columbus City School Board to send written responses to a set of five questions. Our intent was not to endorse, but to learn of each candidate’s views and plans for improving the quality of education for all children and for strengthening teaching, advising and supporting students and to post responses to the CAPE Ohio website.

Despite much hue and cry from what must be a relatively small group of Americans, the U.S. Department of Education is moving on with a variety of policies that will undermine the institution of public education. Do Americans really value public education?
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.
