DeWine replaces Ohio Board of Education members after they resign over anti-racism resolution

View descriptionShare

Gov. Mike DeWine announced his picks for Ohio's State Board of Education hours after two members resigned over a controversial vote to repeal an anti-racism resolution. Board President Laura Kohler, of New Albany, and Eric Poklar, of Worthing, both submitted letters of resignation Friday morning. The governor's spokesman declined to comment, but his office did announce his new nominations for the board Friday afternoon: Brandon Kern from Fairfield County and Richard Chernesky from Waynesville. All the appointed members voted for the original resolution in July 2020, but only Kohler and Poklar voted against repealing it in October.
