Democratic gubernatorial candidate and Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald issued the following statement on the recently released Casey Foundation report, showing Ohio has one of the nation’s worst achievement gaps between black and white students.
“This report makes it clear that Governor Kasich’s approach to the achievement gap is failing our students. There is no reason Ohio should be doing worse than the rest of the nation. As Governor, I will address this issue at its source by investing in early childhood education and working to close our state’s opportunity gap. We cannot continue Governor Kasich’s policy of doing too little, too late for students who have already fallen behind.”
