What Makes a Great School Great?

The report card is in. How did your school district fare? And who should get grounded for poor performance... the superintendent, the principal, the teachers or the children? Everyone wants an excellent school. Ohio sets 30 standards to meet. Those include tests, attendance and graduation rates. Forty local districts earned A's. What does it take to rank excellent and what can other districts learn from the best? You're invited to join the conversation Friday morning at nine on 90.3.




Perry White, founder and executive director of Citizens' Academy Charter School
Russ Bennett, Superintendent of Aurora City Schools
Greg Ring, director of educational services at Amherst Schools
Susan Lang, executive director of the Ohio Center for Essential School Reform
