Here in southern Ohio, we are facing a skills gap, and it’s holding back our economy from reaching its full potential. I hear regularly from employers in logistics, transportation, manufacturing, health care and information technology that they have jobs available and no one to fill them. The JOBS Act will help to close that gap and make students at Southern State Community College in shorter-term technical programs eligible for federal Pell Grants.

    It is bad enough that we have to pay fees for participation in music and theatre programs. In the past 25 years, we have come to expect that such "extracurricular" activities cost money. But this "technology fee" and the accompanying "insurance" – this is for something that kids will supposedly need in class, every day. A Chromebook, which the school district has already paid for. A Chromebook, which my kids will not need at home. A Chromebook, the use of which will end up costing my family $612 – four times its worth.

    Being that bolstering national security via reducing the number of illegal immigrants entering the United States is a cause that Rep. Wenstrup and many of his constituents are in favor of, it’s important to first look at the issue from two perspectives: push factors and pull factors.

    The state takeover of school districts (House Bill 70 of the 131st General Assembly) has caused chaos in school communities, fattened the wallets of consultants, but has not demonstrated improved test scores.

    The charter school industry is replete with concepts, conditions and practices that defy logic. A really bizarre practice in Ohio is funding online charters on the same basis as brick-and-mortar schools.

    Local governance of school districts may not be perfect. Neither is state and federal government. Should the federal government impose a takeover process when some federal officials believe state officials are not achieving some arbitrary standard? Should the federal government be taken over by the United Nations?

    In 2019, caring for individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias will cost the country $290 billion. We must address Alzheimer’s as the public health crisis it is.
