Celebrate your neighborhood school on Feb. 17

The Heights Coalition for Public Education is sponsoring a community rally on Wednesday, Feb. 17, 8:30 a.m., at each of the CH-UH school district’s seven elementary schools. The public is invited to join in the brief but heartfelt thank-you to district teachers and staff, and celebrate students and their education.

Billed as “More than a Score,” the event will recognize that Ohio’s standardized tests do not measure education quality, nor should they define a community or its children. Participants are encouraged to express what they value about our schools and thank teachers for their work.

The Heights Coalition for Public Education is a volunteer group of parents, teachers and community members committed to a high quality of education for all children. It challenges Ohio’s testing program and use of public funds for private education. For more information, visit chuh.net/coalition.
