    GENEVA, Ohio (WOIO) – Geneva Area City School teachers will be on strike starting at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday. The Geneva Area Teachers Association put out a statement stating they will be on strike because they don’t want to continue teaching in-person and online classes at the same time. “I support them 100%, I support them but I hope it’s short-lived,” said Brittany Breedlove.

    Republican proposal would require school districts to post curriculum lists online | Local Education

    WILL worked with legislators on the legislative proposal. “Parents should be empowered to find a school that fits their values, that educates their child and the topics that are important to them,” WILL director of education policy Libby Sobic said last month. “And the best way to ensure that every parent can make that decision is to give them easy access to information from the district.” While the report focused on the same race-based discussion concepts that Republicans around the country have turned into a major culture clash, it also pointed out that liberals might be interested in what’s happening in classrooms. The report noted an example from Oklahoma in…

    McConnell, GOP Urge Education Department to Resist ‘Activist Indoctrination’ in Curriculum | Politics

    Congressional Republicans accused the Biden administration Friday of pushing a divisive and revisionist U.S. history curriculum on schools in the wake of its announcement that it plans to prioritize more diverse perspectives and slavery’s lasting impact on inequality in the U.S. In a letter addressed to Education Secretary Miguel Cardona and signed by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and 36 of his Republican colleagues, McConnell argued the Biden administration’s efforts are akin to “spoon-feeding students a slanted story.” “Americans do not need or want their tax dollars diverted from promoting the principles that unite our nation toward promoting radical ideologies meant to divide us,” McConnell wrote. “Our nation’s…
