A letter was previously submitted on behalf of the Marysville Board of Education to better inform our community regarding Ohio’s EdChoice voucher program.
One paragraph included the fact that “public schools are held to high standards and accountability, unlike private schools that do not have to use the same state tests to assess student achievement and can determine their own enrollment and admission policies.”
We would like to clarify that it was certainly not our intent to imply anything negative regarding our local private schools. In fact, we are fortunate to have so many excellent local public and private educational options for our families.
Again, the purpose of our letter was to inform our community about the detrimental statewide impact of Ohio’s EdChoice voucher program on our public school systems. We appreciate and look forward to continued strong partnerships with our local private schools.
President of the Marysville Board of Education
