Update from OFLA on HB 166
COLUMBUS, OH – The Senate version of the Ohio “coding bill” (HB166) has been updated to redact the language that would replace world languages credits with computer coding credits in high school (see page 214).
However, the bill’s final language will continue to undergo revisions in the House and Senate. JNCL-NCLIS and our colleagues at OFLA have contacted all members of the Senate and House Finance Committees, as well as the Governor’s office, urging them not to replace world languages with coding.
Your advocacy has paid off. But we are not in the clear yet.
If you haven’t, please use our ACTION ALERT to contact your Ohio House or Senate member.
