State Rep. Joe Miller (D-Amherst) today announced upcoming district office hours in Lorain and Amherst. All residents of House District 56 are encouraged to attend and share questions and concerns related to state government.

State Rep. Joe Miller (D-Amherst) today announced he will soon introduce bipartisan legislation with Rep. Don Jones (R-Freeport) to repeal portions of House bill 70, the 2015 bill that brought on state takeovers of local schools in Lorain and throughout the state.

 

“Placing these districts under state control has been a disaster,” said Miller. “In each case, the Academic Distress Commission has been unable to work effectively alongside the district’s teachers, school leaders and community at large.

It’s time for us to restore local control and give struggling schools the support they need to succeed.”
