How Ohio's Teacher Liaison Separates the Personal from the Professional

In what she calls her “personal role”, Ohio teacher liaison and former Kasich campaign worker Sarah Dove is a supporter of Senate Bill 5, the law that would limit collective bargaining and replace salary ladders with performance pay, among other things. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months, you probably know that SB 5 is the target of a repeal campaign.

In an interview last week, Dove said she separates her personal views from her professional role. (Read our story on Dove here.)

“In this role, I don't work on SB 5 issues. My personal views are my personal views. I'm a voter, so I have a right to those views outside. I certainly would never use this role to advocate for my personal views.

“The reason I advocate for SB 5 is because it's frustrating for me to see good teachers let go because of finances. It's frustrating for me to see ineffective teachers allowed to continue (the) status quo and make a lot of money doing it and not being effective with students. I think that administrators need the flexibility to manage the resources they've been entrusted with.

“That's my personal view.”
