Ohio House Democratic Leader Armond Budish released the following statement today in honor of national teacher appreciation week.
“As local school districts across the state face difficult decisions and are forced to lay off teachers and cut programs, it is important that we step back and appreciate all that our educators do. While often underappreciated, our teachers work every day to help nurture our youth and prepare them for the future. The quality education they provide is a crucial building block of our nation’s success. We must work to protect and improve our public education system, because having the best schools and teachers is vital to growing our economy.”
