1. Brown Interview
His sources of information include school superintendents, ptas, and ptos. Whileon the Board, he observed an antinorthern ohio, anti-Cleveland attitude
VIRGIL E. BROWN, JR. CANDIDATE FOR STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION Virgil Brown is a native Clevelander born in 1945 who attended Cleveland public schools. He graduated from CWRU in physics, attended the graduate school of business, and graduated law school cum laude from CSU. He resides in Shaker Heights, where his daughters attend Hathaway Brown School. He is an attorney in private practice which concentrates on civil law, bankruptcy, probate, and real estate. Brown was appointed to the State Board of Education by Governor Voinovich in 1991. He reports that he was never called or influenced by the governor after his appointment. He was elected to a full term in 1992. After serving that term, he ran unsuccessfully for County Treasurer. He is seeking election now because he ``thoroughly enjoyed'' being on the State Board, and found it ``challenging, interesting work.'' When on the Board, he made it a point to meet with PTAs, PTOs, and superintendents throughout the district. They were surprised, because they were not usually visited by their State Board representative. His communication bridged the gap. Brown was on the statewide task force to study the original DeRolph decision. He tried to guide the State Board on whether to appeal or not appeal. He voted not to appeal. He supports the DeRolph decision, and thinks that it is ``correct.'' As a State Board member, he has visited districts that have tables in a hallway for a library, and former coal rooms used as classrooms. He thinks that the current funding system should be revised, as it is not ``reliable, adequate, or fair.''

Understanding Ohio's SunshineLaw
An update covering Ohio's Sunshine Law
as it applies to Ohio boards of education
Ohio's Sunshine Law (Ohio Revised Code Section 121.22), requires that all acts and most deliberations of boards of education and other public bodies, as well as their committees and sub-committees, be conducted in public meetings. Since its enactment in 1975, the Sunshine Law has been a continuing source of inquiry and litigation for boards of education. This brochure attempts to provide answers to the most commonly asked questions about the Sunshine Law as it applies to public boards of education. 1. To what entities does the Sunshine Law apply?
The Sunshine Law has always applied to boards of education. The law also applies to any committee or sub-committee of a board of education. 2. What is a committee or a sub-committee to which the Sunshine Law applies?
Since the law does not define what is a committee or sub-committee, we must wait for the slow process of having courts develop a definition on a case-by-case basis.
Until this occurs, some limitations on a definition can be inferred. A committee or sub-committee created by board action would seem to clearly be covered by the law. If the committee is named by the superintendent, arguably it is not a committee or sub-committee of the board to which the law applies. (

Statewide Laws of Life Essay Contest What is the Laws of Life Essay Contest?
The Laws of Life essay contest was created by Sir John Templeton in 1987 to encourage young people to reflect and write about their “laws of life” or the core values and ideals by which they live their life. The Templeton Foundation provides encouragement and technical assistance to local schools and communities that wish to sponsor contests. OPCE has embraced this program as an important component in developing the character of Ohio youth.
How will a Laws of Life Essay Contest benefit schools or communities? By sponsoring a contest, schools and communities communicate to their youth that they believe ethical and moral development is important. Research tells us that students who reflect and think about ideas learn them at a deeper level. And, t

Beyond Parent Involvement
Partnership model brings school, family, and community together to build student achievement
By Michelle Bates Deakin But Falk wanted to reach out beyond the ring of usual suspects: upper-income parents with high-achieving kids. And he wasn’t just looking for involvement in the PTA. The former research chemist turned stay-at-home dad was hoping to get parents intimately involved in the school’s curriculum with an eye toward improving the performance of all the students, whether they spoke English or one of the school’s nine other languages: Bulgarian, Cambodian, Chinese, French, Khmer, Pakistani, Portuguese, Spanish, and Russian. For a model of how to involve parents in improving schools, Falk and the administration of Park Avenue Elementary turned to the National Network of Partnership Schools at Johns Hopkins University. The group provided a road map for Park Avenue to follow. The plan showed the school how to create five “action teams” for reading, writing, math, behavior, and partnerships. And in just four years the results of those teams have been dramatic. Standardized test scores have risen, and behavior problems with children have dwindled, with suspensions all but disappearing. Communication between parents and teachers has flourished, with multilingual volunteers sending newsletters and making phone calls to parents each month. “The Network pointed the way for us,” says Falk. “It allowed us to go menu shopping and look at what other schools have done and what’s worked.”

So, you never thought you'd find yourself picketing at a protest rally at the state house? Well, neither did we. But when we found a cause we felt so strongly about, we found ourselves doing all sorts of things we had never imagined. If picketing is not for you, that's alright. Write a letter, tell a friend. The important thing is just to spread the word. Here's a list of all sorts of activities you can become involved with. Now what are you waiting for? Pick one and get started!
EDUCATE YOURSELF This website is filled with information and links to other sites which provide the history of Ohio Proficiency Tests, results and evaluations of Ohio Proficiency Tests and other standardized testing, experts in the area, and good educational practices based in sound research.
While you're at it, if you've never seen the Ohio Proficiency Tests, download them from the Ohio Department of Education website or you can request them for a copying charge of $.05 per page. Oh, have some fun with it. See how well you do on it. Give it to friends and peers and see how they score. Then ask yourself: Is this developmentally and educationally appropriate for our children? Does this truly measure the academic skills and learning processes that we desire for our children? Should this single test be used to make high-stakes decisions such as grade advancement and graduation? Does this provide such important and new information that it justifies the time and expense spent on it? And who made up those test questions anyway?

    Stealing from the PTO
    Theft by volunteers is more common than you think. But you can prevent it.
    By Michelle Bates Deakin Last year, the Hampstead Elementary School PTA in Maryland had two goals: to replace the school’s aging playground equipment and to install a state-of-the-art wireless computer lab. Toward those ends, children tromped through the rural town hawking candles and drumming up participants for run-a-thons, all contributing to a $60,000 take to fund the climbers, swings, and keyboards. Little did the children or their parents know, however, that as fast as the money was coming in, it was going out. In July, just as the PTA’s treasurer was finishing his two-year term, he was arrested for stealing more than $62,000 from the organization. The staggering loss has put the school’s long-awaited projects at risk. The situation at Hampstead is an example of one of the biggest but least-discussed threats to parent groups: embezzlement. That anger is fueling local prosecutor Melissa Hockensmith, who’s handling the case, in which John N. Biggs faces 39 charges of theft. “The kids earned this money, and there’s a good lesson we can show them,” says Hockensmith. “You can’t take someone’s hard-earned money and just get away with it.”

    How to Get Involved
    in Cincinnati Public Schools
    There are many ways that parents, community members, businesses and organizations can get involved in the Cincinnati Public School District. Check with Your Local School Opportunities abound at each and every local school. Different schools need help in different ways. Check with the principal about what your school needs. Volunteers: Some are looking for people to help out in classrooms, lunchrooms and on the playground. Others are searching for volunteers to help with field trips or in the office. Parent Organizations: Many schools have Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs) or Parent Teacher Organizations (PTOs) that organize many events and fund-raising efforts for the school and are looking for active members. Lecturers and Guest Speakers: Schools can always use volunteers to speak on Career Days or share some special talent or skill with young people. Donations: Often schools are searching for special materials like leftover wood, fabric, paint, etc. that children can use express their creativity and make art and class projects.

    Cutting Class:
    The PTA Plays Hooky
    from Educational Reform
    Policy Review
    Summer 1995, Number 73
    by Charlene Haar Since the publication of "A Nation at Risk" in 1983, Americans have become increasingly alarmed about the dismal results and soaring costs of their public schools. No group of citizens has a closer view of these problems or a more immediate stake in addressing them than the parents of the country's 48 million schoolchildren. Here and there, parents have won minor battles to influence curricula or oust mediocre school-board members. But as individuals, parents are no match for the forces that favor the status quo. Parents' most promising forum to agitate for reform and hold their local educators accountable for failure already exists: the venerated National Congress of Parents and Teachers, commonly known as the PTA. Unfortunately, parents cannot count on either their local PTA or its national leadership to advance parental interests or even air diverse viewpoints. As it operates today, the PTA is useless to parents who want to play a meaningful role in educational reform. The mission of the PTA has always been to "work on behalf of the best interests of all children on issues that affect their health, education, and welfare" and "to encourage parent involvement." With almost seven million members, the PTA offers great potential for promoting parental involvement in the educational welfare of children. But in the 1990s, that mission requires of the PTA something it has been unwilling to do: demand accountability for performance and spending at every level of the educational system.
