Ohio Supreme Court To Hear Oral Arguments Regarding House Bill 70

The court agreed to hear the appeal Oct. 24, 2018

Oral arguments will be heard Oct. 23 by the Ohio Supreme Court in the fight against House Bill 70, which allowed state oversight of Youngstown City Schools.

State. Rep. Michele Lepore-Hagan of Youngstown, D-58th, said she’s been saying from the very beginning that the Youngstown Board of Education needs to be heard on this legislation, which placed an academic distress commission and a CEO in charge of finances and planning due to failed academic performance.

“It was done in secret by outsiders,” she said. “It was a brazen disregard of the law. I’m hopeful we can get back to the real issues at hand – recognizing we need to educate our kids. That’s the greatest need.”
