Hillsboro Times Gazette, Hillsboro, Ohio, 29 January 2007, Losing heritage and educational control
Recently, our government leaders have changed the high school curriculum. This change is not just for our public schools but for all schools. I think this is a move by a handful of people. I say this because of what happened in committee just before the real vote on these new state educational goals was taken. The new goals are titled “Ohio Core Curriculum.”
So now we have a new education system that, I think, is specifically designed to destroy not only our public schools but our private Christian schools, charter schools, and home-schooling.
First, it was the proficiency test and our government told our schools exactly what to teach, when to teach and how to teach. Before the dust could settle on this state blunder, the state installed the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT).
Now, here comes the Ohio Core Curriculum (OCC).
