Education is a prime factor for many families when deciding where to raise their kids.
Learning standards are changing across the nation, and greatly in the State of Ohio.
So a public forum is being held Wednesday to create conversation between concerned parents and officials.
It is happening Wednesday at 6 p.m. at Marietta College's Alma McDonough Auditorium.
It's an opportunity for parents to ask questions and show their concerns with Ohio's new K-12 learning standard.
"Just to sort of clear up any ambiguity that takes place out there, because it's very easy when things change in public schools system, it's very easy for people to just to not truly understand it," says college spokesman Tom Perry. "This is a chance for people to come, ask questions, get answers to those questions from the people who truly know."
This is also a chance to understand the teacher performance assessment and district building report cards as well.
