The following statement can be attributed to Ohio Federation of Teachers President Melissa Cropper

(Sept. 12, 2018) Gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray's plan to invest in education is the strongest offered by any candidate or officeholder in many years.

Cordray understands that investing in education by supporting wraparound social and health services, attracting and retaining qualified educators to our schools, and providing full funding will strengthen future opportunities for students as they learn, grow and thrive. Cordray understands the need to reduce testing and purge corruption from Ohio's scandal-ridden charter schools. He understands that  students bring to school a variety of needs that must be met with an equally diverse and comprehensive education.

As educators, we are thrilled that our next governor has set out a plan that will fully support Ohio's public schools, students and families. With Cordray's policies in motion, students will have greater opportunities to achieve, excel and succeed in academics, work and life.

Sadly, his opponent has spent his career voting against our children and against education.

We are confident that voters will see his record for what it is and put Ohio on the right track by electing Richard Cordray governor.
