A CALL TO ACTION FROM YOUR FRIENDS AT SWOEA RETIRED!

As educators you've experienced the result of good legislation: school nurses, new buildings, laws and

protecting children. You've also experienced the result of bad legislation: inadequate school funding, ed

choice, over testing, school grade cards, state takeovers, and unrealistic demands on your time.


Let's work to select candidates who have been endorsed by OEA! These candidates have a good under-

standing of what. it takes. to educate children. Please check the list of OEA Endorsed Candidates below on

and their photos on the SWOEA Website Photos Page. Support them with your volunteerism and your vote! 


Each week we will send you a CALL TO ACTION to help us continue to elect public officials who have our

back and who will support our students. 

Your Action Items for Week Three are:             

 

1. Mary E Binegar, retired Special Education teacher, is running for State Board of Education.  District 10

(see map to the right). She could use ALOT of help.  Mary is running because she believes ‘Teachers need to

be at the table when policies and laws are enacted that impact Ohio’s education system’. State Board of Education.  

District 10 (see map). She could use ALOT of help.  Mary is running because she believes ‘Teachers need to be at the table
