Gov. Kasich State of the State and Education

April 05, 2017 7:30 AM | Ohio ACTE (Administrator)


During Gov. John Kasich  "State of the State" address on April 4 in Sandusky, he  announced a new initiative on education  --  a task force of business leaders and educators "to look into the future" and identify how the state can "make the future an opportunity not an obstacle."  Gov. Kasich said this group will look at what jobs there are now, how they will change and which ones might disappear.    He also mentioned two budget budget proposals, which he said would help teachers get better in touch with their communities: the proposal they spend a few days, as part of their license renewal, in businesses in the community and the addition of three business people to local school boards.


Gov. Kasich also covered economic recovery, technical initiatives, higher education and many topics he has addressed throughout his term.  He stressed the need to keep the "foot on the accelerator," saying if the state stops to rest, it will fall behind. "Where we are now is fine, but we must keep moving up."
