The first topic on the state Board of Education's agenda is a discussion about social media.

Last month, board president Debe Terhar said she made a mistake after sharing a photo of Hitler on a Facebook page while criticizing President Barack Obama's new gun-control efforts.

She maintains that she was not trying to compare Obama to the Nazi leader.

Some Democrats have called on Terhar, who is a Republican, to apologize while others have said she should resign.

Gov. John Kasich (KAY-sik) has said she should not lose her job.
