The Ohio eSchool Families & Friends Coalition, a non-profit school choice advocacy organization, and Ohio Alliance for Public School Options recently hosted the annual Online Learning Day. Families from across Ohio ventured to the historic Ohio Statehouse in Columbus to hear great speakers and alumni of public eSchools.
They were also given the chance to connect with one another, participate in educational activities provided by Ohio eSchools and write letters to their local legislators. Many also got the chance to meet one-on-one with their legislators, a news release states.
Rep. Andrew Brenner attended the event and met with families from the area.
“We recently met with Rep. Brenner to present him with this year’s Ohio eSchool Coalition Golden Apple Award are were so excited to meet up with him again,” said Tamela Dutcher of Delaware.
“We appreciate that Rep. Brenner has listened to our personal story of why we choose to eSchool our daughter and feel he is on board with trusting parents to make educational decisions for our children. We are so thankful for his leadership and the time he has taken to meet with us on these occasions.”
“Congratulations go out to Rep. Brenner for receiving this year’s Golden Apple Award,” said Sara Donlon, president of the Ohio eSchool Coalition.
“He’s a true champion for the school choice and eSchooling movements. We’re so grateful for his support and are thrilled to have had him attend Online Learning Day. The many interactions he’s had with eSchool families have helped him understand that parents know what’s best for each of their children. It’s imperative that parents are trusted to make the best educational decisions for their family.”
Online Learning Day is in its second year in Ohio.
