Beth Workman for Ohio House is inviting all members of District 92 to a campaign picnic at Yoctangee Park in Chillicothe. Food, drinks, and fellowship will be provided, along with the chance to discuss state and local issues with Workman.
Register for this event below!
“The state of Ohio has been operating under an unconstitutional funding system for over 20 years,” Workman says. “When elected to office, I will focus on changing our present funding system. I also will fight to restore all funding to our local public schools that has been given to charter schools, some of which has gone to make private citizens millionaires.”
Workman, a former educator at Paint Valley Local Schools, will be focusing on education issues in her campaign. She believes that every student, regardless of zip code, is entitled to an excellent education. She also believes that the charter school industry has taken valuable resources away from public schools and has been allowed by our state legislators to operate in an unregulated manner. The state itself has also taken necessary funding from our schools, as well as from our local government. Beth wants to see these funds restored.
“The whole people must take upon themselves the education of the whole people and be willing to bear the expenses of it. There should not be a district of one mile square, without a school in it, not founded by a charitable individual, but maintained at the public expense of the people themselves.” This is a quote by John Adams that is used often by William Phyllis, the head of the Ohio Coalition for Equity and Adequacy in School Funding. Bill has been fighting against this unconstitutional system of funding for years and Beth would like to join him in this fight.
Come to discuss these educational issues as well as other issues that you would like to see addressed by your legislators.
