Impressions of Reform in Ohio Schools.
Kahle, J. B.; Tobin, K. G.; Rogg, S. R.
This document consists of short reviews of 13 Ohio schools. The goal is to illustrate each school's atmosphere and members through a report made by an education expert who actually visited the school, as opposed to a statistical report. Interviews of students and teachers are included, as are impressions of reform methods being used in the school, and the effectiveness of the reforms. The Ohio schools described in the sketches are divided into five categories: (1) Cincinnati Urban Systemic Initiative Schools; (2) Cleveland Urban Systemic Initiative Schools; (3) Columbus Urban Systemic Initiative Schools; (4) Appalachian Rural Systemic Initiative Schools; and (5) Non-Systemic Initiative Schools. Two more tales are included at the end: "What is Learned from Hands on Activities?" and "Care, Interest and Focusing on Tests: Sufficient Keys to Success in Science?" (JMD)
