Education Policy Studies: Business Involvement in Ohio's Education Reform. In Brief.
National Governors' Association, Washington, DC.
The business community is becoming recognized as an important partner in educational reform. Although more traditional adopt-a-school programs and career-day activities remain popular, the growing national concern over education and its perceived economic impact have compelled businesses to become agents of change. Business-led organizations such as the National Alliance of Business (NAB), the Business Roundtable (BRT), and the Committee for Economic Development have taken leadership roles in supporting systemic education reform. Encouraged by these national organizations, businesses at the state and local levels are directly participating in state education policy arenas. This report describes Ohio's state-level business-education partnership, discusses why it was formed, and explores how it continues to influence education policy and practice in the state. (GLR)
