Ohio Senate OKs education, evaluation changes

Written by 

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio Senate has passed an education plan that includes adjustments to teachers' performance evaluations and safeguards to protect student data.

The ideas were among a slew of policy changes contained in two midterm budget bills that cleared the Senate on Wednesday. Senators passed the education proposal on a 27-5 vote.

Some Senate changes in the education measure were aimed at asserting the role of local school districts in implementing Ohio's new learning standards.

The proposal states that a school district board has the authority to determine the curriculum, textbooks and course materials used in Ohio classrooms. It also would require districts to give parents an opportunity to review the instruction materials.

The House passed an earlier version of the education bill.
