DDN: Ohio college faculty could face more scrutiny in proposed law

Tenured faculty could face state mandated evaluations and minimum teaching requirements

Tenured faculty at Ohio’s public universities could face state mandated evaluations and minimum teaching requirements if bills in the statehouse become law.

“It’s an attack on faculty,” said John McNay, president of the Ohio chapter of the American Association of University Professors and a history professor at the University of Cincinnati. “The whole thing is very puzzling.”

This is the reaction to an Ohio House of Representatives law to make sure faculty are also teachers.
