Candidates for the Cincinnati School Board
Recognizing the importance of public education, this Community Issues Forum features the candidates running for the Cincinnati School Board.
Eve Bolton, Carolyn Jones, and Pamela Bowers (the incumbents), and Marlena Brookfield, Ben Lindy, Heather Couch, Gary Favor, and Steve Megerle are making their case for winning a seat on the Board.
Because state government has never properly responded to the Ohio Supreme Court’s ruling on funding for public schools, districts such as Cincinnati’s have struggled to finance their operations and programs. Meanwhile, Cincinnati Public Schools in recent years moved ahead with innovations such as Preschool Promise and a variety of special schools with unique programs. The candidates are being asked to talk about the current situation and their ideas for the future.
All forums conclude with time for questions and comments from the audience.
