Ohio Learning Standards:
In June 2010, the State Board of Education adopted the current standards in English language arts and mathematics as a result of a multi-state effort. The board also has adopted Ohio’s Learning Standards in science, social studies, fine arts, world languages and several other subjects. These more rigorous standards, geared to college and career readiness, are driving learning in Ohio classrooms.
Ohio PTA has a long history of supporting common academic standards. In 2010, a grassroots committee was formed to educate PTA members and others about common standards. In 2011, a resolution supporting academic standards that would develop a stronger and more accountable system of education and encouraging schools to place priority on student performance and achievement was adopted by the Ohio PTA voting delegates during the Ohio PTA Convention.
