HB 165

Health Freedom Ohio Opposes HB 165

The bill would require Ohio’s Board of Education to adopt health standards based on the existing CDC Healthy Schools National Health Education Standards and implement these standards by July 1st, 2020. The bill repeals current law that prohibits the State Board of Education from adopting or revising any standards or curriculum in the area of health unless the standards, curriculum, or revisions are approved by both houses of the General Assembly through a concurrent resolution. Additionally, the bill repeals a provision that requires both the House and Senate education committees to conduct at least one public hearing on the standards, curriculum, or revisions prior to voting on the concurrent resolution.
