Ohio Seeks to Remove Educator Fees for Military

Posted January 2, 2015 at 2:23pm

The Dayton (OH) Daily News reports that “in a move not yet quantified, the Ohio Department of Education has eliminated fees for U.S. veterans, current service members and their spouses applying for educator licenses.”  

“Starting today, the fees for any initial Ohio educator license, permit or certificate — or for a renewal — will be waived for candidates who are veterans or current service members of all branches of the United States Armed Forces, including the National Guard or Reserves, and spouses of active duty services members, according to ODE.”  

“John Charlton, spokesman at ODE, said the department doesn’t have an estimate for the number of educators that might be eligible for the fee waiver or by how much money the fee waiver will impact the department.”
