School safety was the top topic for the state board of education, which hoped to learn about how to make buildings, staff and students more secure. But Ohio Public Radio’s Karen Kasler reports, one idea that’s been making the rounds isn't likely to move forward
“Twenty-two seconds from the time the shooter shot the first bullet till the time he exited the school building. Twenty-two seconds.”
Ohio's state school board is nearing selection of a new state superintendent.
The 19-member State Board of Education is expected Tuesday to name a full-time replacement for Stan Heffner, who retired in August amid ethics questions surrounding his relationship with a private testing firm.
A selection committee is recommending two finalists to oversee Ohio's public school system: Acting State Superintendent Michael Sawyers, and Richard Ross, top education adviser to Gov. John Kasich.
The president of Ohio's education board says she shared a Facebook posting with a photo of Adolf Hitler to encourage historical reflection amid the gun-control debate, not to compare President Barack Obama to the Nazi leader.
The Columbus Dispatch reports the photo was shared on the mostly private Facebook page of state Board of Education President Debe Terhar, along with a message criticizing Obama's new gun-control efforts. The newspaper says a quote about disarming citizens was attributed to Hitler in the message.
