Welcome to Ohioans for Educational Freedom!
We are citizens who believe in civic responsibility. We have dedicated ourselves to assisting the best possible candidates to an electable office. Believing we can make a difference, we have put our collective abilities together to preserve our core values and retain our moral fabric. We hope you will come on board and
join with us as we accomplish our mission! The Ohioans for Educational Freedom PAC is the only Ohio political action committee that is singularly focused on protecting the rights of Ohio’s home educators, as well as educational freedom for Ohio’s parents to decide what choice most applies to them.
This year, we will have listed candidates in the primary for State Board of Education (below). Please bookmark our page and check back with us, often. Our web site has been a popular landing spot during previous election seasons, at one point with over 1.9 million hits in four months!
If you are an Ohio resident, individuals can donate up to $50.00 and couples up to $100.00 and receive that money back when you file your Ohio taxes this Spring as a credit. If you can contribute this amount, it is for a good cause and an important election for Ohio parental choice in education and it is not costing you anything.
Ohioans for Educational Freedom is proud to endorse the following candidates for State Board of Education Please see what county you live in for your district and GET INVOLVED! Read Below and vote!
Also, one of our strategic partners is Ohio Christian Alliance. Their voter guide can be found here:
District 2: Kathleen McGervey
. Kathleen has been a blessing to have on the SBE since the 2010 election, when OEF first endorsed her and assisted in her campaign. She is in full support of repealing Common Core Standards and supporting parents to freely home educate their children as they see fit. She will be running against a BIG name in Ohio politics, Please go to her FB campaign site and volunteer your time!

Counties: Erie, part of Fulton, Huron, Lorain, Lucas, Wood
District 3: Mary Pritchard
is the candidate we are endorsing and supporting in the district where progressive liberal Larry Mims, Jr. vacated the seat in January. Even though OEF endorsed a candidate in 2010 in this district, Mims won the seat and was an antagonist to home schooling over the last three years. OEF vowed to attempt to win the seat back but that will not happen unless we work for Mary. Even though there is another candidate in District 3 that opposes Common Core Standards, we have endorsed Mary Pritchard. She needs a ton of help to overcome Democrat A.J. Wagner, who was just appointed by Gov. Kasich and is a huge name in the area. Mary Pritchard is our best opportunity to unseat this person. She is up against Goliath.She is with the Butler County Educational Service Center as board President. She is completely for repealing Common Core Standards and for home schooling! Here is her information:

We fully endorsed Chris in his run earlier in the year and we happily endorse him again for SBE 5. He is for the full repeal of Common Core Standards and fully supports parents rights to home educate! Go to his site and volunteer your time!
