Who is in charge of our kids? The Ohio House or parents. Speaker Rosenberger thinks the politicians should have control of education decisions.
Speaking before the City Club of Cleveland Speaker Cliff Rosenberger talked about Common Core. “In education, I have no problem talking about Common Core. Let me say this, as leaders we should not let populous movements lead the decisions we make in the state legislature or in Congress. No matter what!
We’re the ones in charge. We’re the ones that have the ability to hear from the public, but let’s remember that this is a Republic. We have the opportunity to sit and make strategic decisions that are smart for the citizens of the state…” at 14:00 min in the video below….
In an interview with the Columbus Dispatch about the tax cuts in Governor Kasich’s budget the Speaker mentioned conversations with business owners in Ohio. “I think it’s valid what they’re saying,” Rosenberger said. “We’re sitting down with the chambers (of commerce) and these groups and saying: If you don’t like these provisions, then what is a good end point here?”
So the Speaker doesn’t think parents should have input on their kids, but business should have input on taxes?
How does the representative republic work in Ohio?
