Ohio Social Studies Legislative Concerns

The Ohio Legislature has multiple bills that threaten the very goals of social studies education in Ohio.  OCSS is committed to opposing these bills in a non-biased and professional approach in order to protect and defend the teaching and learning of outstanding social studies. 

*  Position Statement Opposing HB 616 (Passed 6-11-22)


The Ohio Council for the Social Studies serves as the premier voice for social studies professionals in Ohio. We advocate for the vital role of social studies teaching and learning in all classrooms and communities to best prepare learners to undertake this nation’s highest office, that of office of citizen in a democracy. We assist educators statewide through professional development for the delivery of effective and innovative instruction. Our conference, regional institutes, and numerous publications provide a network of services to members throughout the state.
