Twyonia Cooper has fought the good fight for her children’s education.

Her crusade first took hold three years ago when her college-bound daughter was being taught Spanish by a substitute teacher at John Adams High School in Cleveland.

It wasn’t for a day or two. It was more than two months that her daughter spent with a sub.

“If the teachers don’t come to school, how do you expect the students to come?” Cooper said last week. “They see that you’re not there so why should I be coming to school.”

Cooper’s plight is symbolic of a recurring theme in Cleveland schools and schools across Ohio.

According to a study released this summer, 27 percent of Ohio school teachers call off at least 10 days a year.

Ohio schools are required to provide approximately 180 days of instruction.
