COLUMBUS - State Senator Matt Huffman (R-Lima) on Tuesday will be joined by public school superintendents to announce legislation designed to reduce the amount of unnecessary mandates and regulations affecting Ohio’s public schools.

"All too often what sounds like a good idea in Columbus translates instead to burdensome paperwork and tedious tasks that distract teachers and superintendents from their primary role in our schools—educating," said Senator Huffman. "These issues take up an absurd amount of teacher and administrator time and labor, which could be used more appropriately to deliver quality education to Ohio’s children."

The bill, named the Ohio Public School Deregulation Act, addresses a myriad of education topics and standards, either contained in the Revised Code or currently sheltered in agency rule.

WHO:
Senator Matt Huffman (R-Lima)
Chris Pfister, Superintendent of Waynesfield-Goshen,
Shelly Vaughn, Superintendent of Mercer County ESC
Brenda Boeke, Superintendent of Minster
Jason Wood, Superintendent of Coldwater
Julie Garke, Superintendent of St Henry

WHEN: 
Tuesday, October 10, 2017 at 11:00 a.m.

WHERE:
Harding Press Briefing Room, Ohio Statehouse
