OCTM Survey: Gathering support from educators and parents for Ohio's New Learning Standards in Mathematics, as well as suggestions for professional development and other needs


OCTM is working to collect and compile brief statements from Ohio teachers, administrators, and parents regarding positive experiences with Ohio's New Learning Standards in Mathematics. Although we recognize that individuals may have questions about specific parts of the standards, OCTM has adopted a formal position in support of the standards; this statement can be found HERE.

The statements provided in the survey may be shared with legislators and thus may become public record. Not all statements that are provided will be shared, but we want to gather as many individual comments as possible.

Please respond by June 1 and forward this to your colleagues as well. Click HERE to complete the survey. Even brief comments are powerful when they are joined with many others!
