Teachers unions are raising questions about a controversial proposal in Gov. John Kasich’s budget that would require educators to shadow workers at local businesses in order to renew their license.
The idea is to give teachers an inside look at how companies operate and what students would need to know as future employees.
Melissa Cropper is president of the Ohio Federation of Teachers, one of the state’s two teachers’ unions. She says she’s absolutely against requiring this in order for teachers to renew their licenses, but might be interested if it’s an option.
