- New legislation seeks to streamline requirements for nearly 50,000 homeschooled students in Ohio. Hear why opponents of the legislation say it is a bad idea.
- Bills focusing on transgender children are pending at the Ohio Statehouse. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle said they’re looking out for the best interests of the LGBTQ community.
