Received this e-mail today from Ed FitzGerald's (D. OH) gubernatorial campaign:
Test cheating. Tampering with attendance. Racism. Sexual misconduct.

In Ohio, a chain of 19 charter schools is now under investigation for these violations. It’s not what any parent wants to see in their child's school.

Not only are these schools failing to challenge and prepare our children, but they pose a real threat to children's safety. It’s an unfortunate consequence of a system rigged to give public money to unaccountable companies that see our students as cash cows, not the future of our state.

It's time to hold Governor Kasich accountable and end his failed experiment on Ohio's schools.

Join me and tell Kasich: Our kids' futures are not up for sale. Stop taking money from public schools and giving it to failed charter schools run by your wealthy friends.

Add your name to my petition to Governor Kasich.

Our children's futures shouldn't depend on donations to Kasich’s campaign fund. But that's exactly what's happening right now. After donating over $62,000 to Kasich's 2010 campaign, White Hat Management literally wrote the charter school law for Ohio without a single legislator present.

We need an effective education system that teaches our children the skills they need for life -- not just how to take a test. We need to refocus on supporting passionate teachers who inspire their students, not demonizing them with bills like SB 5.

It's time to focus on effective education, not what's best for Kasich's campaign donors.

If you agree, please sign on to my letter to Governor Kasich:

Thanks for your support,

Ed FitzGerald

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
