Accelerating Student Learning in Ohio. Five Policy Recommendations for Strengthening Public Education in the Buckeye State
Thomas B. Fordham Institute
This report offers five recommendations for strengthening Ohio's education renewal framework and accelerating the pace of improvement in the months and years ahead. The five recommendations include: (1) Creating world-class standards and stronger accountability mechanisms; (2) Ensure that funding is fairly allocated among all children and schools; (3) Recruit the best and brightest to lead schools and empower them to succeed; (4) Improve teacher quality; and (5) Expand the quality of, and access to, a range of high-performing school options. The report offers relevant examples of the best practices and thinking from across the nation and world as well as within the state of Ohio. Through these means, Ohio will position itself to meet the tripartite goals of maximizing the talents of every child, developing a world-class system of education, and reducing achievement gaps.
