Gov. John Kasich signs House Bill 21, which qualifies "Teach for America" participants for a resident educator license in Ohio. "Teach for America" is a national organization established in 1990 that recruits and trains top college graduates who commit to spend two years teaching in urban and rural public schools. HB 21 will allow Ohio to be added to the list of 31 states plus the District of Columbus that currently have Teach For America teachers in their classrooms.
