Get out of the way, politicians. Let the teachers have their say!

David Pepper attended the meeting of the STRS Ohio Retirement Board on May 15, 2024. Here's his Pepperspective on the mess at STRS.

It happened like clockwork, but one year apart.

Right before an election outcome is announced for a seat on Ohio’s teacher pension board, Governor DeWine swoops in with a big, chaotic announcement.

Last year, it was to replace one board member with another (based on an after-the-fact assertion of too many missed meetings…which meeting minutes proved to be false).

This year (last week), DeWine made an even more charged accusation, based on an anonymous memo, that has now drawn in the Ohio Attorney General.
