  5. 5. What Ohio Citizens Are Saying about the Need for Twenty-First Century Learning Environments… • “We have a passion deficit. I think it is very important that we focus on getting our students, all of our students, regardless of ability, to be passionate about education. Education is not about filling an empty vessel; it’s about lighting a fire.” - School Board Member, Columbus, Ohio • “Not all kids will go to college, but they do need advanced skills and need to be life-long learners.” - Principal, Cincinnati, Ohio • “I think the reason many students drop out is because they can’t connect it [their classroom experience] to something they can use.” - Student, South Webster High School

  8. 8. IS THERE ENOUGH TIME?
  9. 9. What Ohio Citizens Are Saying about the Need for Expanding Learning Opportunities… • “I would like to see someone be able to stir up something in these youth. You can lock them up, but they are still the future. You know, the ones we have pretty much forgotten, but are children. Some of them have gotten felonies in middle school… I would like to see something in place to let these youth know, especially the black males and the Hispanics, that it’s not hopeless.” - Parent, Columbus, Ohio • “I think that if we are going to look at education…we need to provide children with [pre-K early education] services regardless of income.” - Woman from Early Action Initiative, Lima, Ohio • “One of my big problems with students not being successes is attendance…It seems to be a problem we don’t have any good answers for.” - Teacher, Jackson High School
  10. 10. malcolm’s teachers…
  11. 11. are designing learning in a world where the amount of information in one week of Wall Jobs that don’t yet exist, using technology Street Journals that hasn’t yet been created to solve problems that we don’t even know exist yet? is more than a citizen would confront in a life time in the 18th Century she loves…
  12. 12. CAN THEY KEEP UP?
  13. 13. What Ohio Citizens Are Saying about the Need for High Quality Educators… • “Until and unless we find ways to attract the best and brightest to [the education] profession, we have a long way to go to making it a world class operation.” - School Board Member and Professor of Education • “I would propose a new system of how we reward our teachers and look at a different way to be more robust in how we manage and utilize our teachers.” - Businessman, Parent, Cincinnati, Ohio • “Every child deserves highly qualified teachers, but they also need counselors, social workers, and nurses…We all compliment teachers in the classroom…I would like to suggest a mandate for school nurses for the State of Ohio.” - School Nurse, Southeast Region

  18. 18. What Ohio Citizens Are Saying about the Need to Measure Ohio Students Against the World… • “Your mission is a bold step, not only in Ohio, but in the United States to think about educating all children at very high levels.” - Superintendent, Columbus Ohio • “We need to start early…to bring a child up in the information age…[so] they’ll be able to compete.” - Volunteer with Arts Program and Former City Councilman • Ohioans appear to like broadening graduation requirements to include more than a single measure, but are less certain about specific tests. They support adding factors such as community service and senior projects as graduation requirements (66% - 27%). - Recent KnowledgeWorks Foundation State-wide Poll

  22. 22. What Ohio Citizens Are Saying about the Need for School District Accountability… • Ohioans also appear to want local accountability and control.

Nearly 35% of respondents favor basing funding on research data and evidence of what works while just 3.9% oppose the idea. - Recent KnowledgeWorks Foundation State-wide Poll
