YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Wednesday afternoon, Youngstown Schools CEO Krish Mohip listened to his teachers talk about the good and bad of the city schools.

Twenty-eight Youngstown City School teachers gathered for the first meeting of Mohip’s Teacher’s Advisory Committee meeting.

Mohip asked that nothing said be reported. He wanted open discussion about the schools and didn’t want teachers worried about their comments showing up on the news.

Afterwards, teachers seemed happy with the meeting. Teachers union Vice President Paul Valentini is pleased the committee has been formed, because the teachers are demanding a voice.

“We’ve decided, as teachers, it’s time for us to speak loud and speak clear and make sure we’re heard.” Valentini said.

Mohip was complementary of the teachers.

“This is by far the most competent, dedicated and just a world-class staff,” Mohip said. “Some of the best teachers I’ve ever seen are sitting here in Youngstown city schools.”

Mohip allotted an hour for Wednesday’s meeting. It went an hour and 15 minutes.

He plans to have another meeting next month with an allotted time of two hours.
