Education Policy Group Gives Ohio a C- on Latest Nationwide Report Card
Harris thinks one area that Ohio could really improve in is better elevating teachers.
"This is a frustrating area. For Ohio, we still have a system that does not recognize a teacher's merit. In Ohio, by law, teachers can only be paid or promoted based on seniority, which basically is the number of years that they've been in the teaching profession. And our view is that these aren't factory workers, these are dynamic professionals, and we should have a compensation system that recognizes the impact of teachers."
