The event was part of a unique project WYSO is participating in called Your Voice Ohio. The goal of the collaborative initiative is to bring Ohioans from all walks of life together, to brainstorm homegrown solutions to the opioid crisis.

Dozens of people packed into the Dayton Public Library Monday night to learn more about the crowded race for Dayton School Board. Eight candidates faced off in a debate just weeks before the fall election. The race is attracting attention because a majority of the board’s seats are up for grabs.

At the forum, candidates clashed over staffing issues, educational policy for immigrant students, and the need for a new tax levy.
