Representative Morgan announces introduction of Race to the Top Legislation

COLUMBUSState Representative Seth Morgan (R-Huber Heights) today announced the introduction of House Bill (HB) 312, Race to the Top Legislation.

This legislation makes it possible for Teach for America teachers to obtain teacher licensure in Ohio.  Additionally, this legislation will remove certain moratoriums that currently exist for Ohio community schools, including virtual and e-schools.  HB 312 is a companion bill to Senate Bill 180, introduced by Senator Jon Husted (R-Kettering).

HB 312 is designed to make Ohio more attractive to compete for the over $4 billion of federal Race to the Top grants.

“As long as accountability standards are met, Ohio needs to take an ‘all of the above’ approach to attracting good educators and educating students.  Expanding school choice and the Teach for America program in Ohio are two important measures that will help Ohio compete for these funds,” Morgan said.

Upon its introduction HB 312 was co-sponsored by seven other Republican legislators.

"I hope that members of the majority caucus will either join these seven cosponsors and me in embracing HB 312 and its companion in the Senate or present their own competing plan to help Ohio compete educationally.  Outside of Columbus these ideas are mainstream – it’s time this legislature catches up.”

Seth Morgan, CPA is the State Representative of the 36th District representing parts of Montgomery County.  Seth Morgan is the ranking member of the House Finance and Appropriations Subcommittee on Primary and Secondary Education and Chairman of the House Republican Caucus Policy Committee.
