Say Yes To Education; Testing Reduction Recommendation
Cleveland leaders have started the planning and fundraising work needed to partner with a national non profit on a program to help Cleveland students get ready for college -- and pay for it. The Say Yes to Education organization helps cities align their resources, create a college going culture and raise money needed to put high education within every student's reach. We'll talk to two of the partners engaged in Cleveland's effort about the Say Yes program and how it might work. Then, the State Superintendent has recommended a reduction in the number of tests Ohio students take. We'll discuss his proposal with educators.
