Removing the Barriers: Unleashing Ohio's Learning Power. A Report to Governor George V. Voinovich by the Governor's Education Management Council and the Ohio Department of Education.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus.
This report presents findings of an analysis that identified gaps between the Ohio education system and national education goals. Data were collected during 1992 and 1993 by the Ohio Department of Education, which elicited feedback from policymakers at a 1992 seminar, conducted interviews with local teams representing school districts and communities, and made site visits to 15 communities. Key state policymakers reviewed findings and offered suggestions. The information is organized around four main themes: performance-driven education; change; family support and advocacy; and lifelong learning. The report identifies critical issues confronting Ohio, outlines specific gaps between state outcomes and national goals, provides evidence supporting the need for change, makes key recommendations, and identifies steps for policy action. Appendices contain a list of program participants, interview team members, the interview form, and the National Education Goals and Business Roundtable's agenda. (LMI)
