Northeast Ohio is rich in educational opportunities but also faces significant challenges in the educational arena. The region is home to a system of strong, effective post-secondary educational institutions that help drive the success of the regional economy in engineering, biomedical and polymer science, advanced manufacturing and healthcare. These assets enrich our community and offer tremendous opportunity for the future of the region. At the same time, the region has a history of producing generations of undereducated citizens who have been ill served by educational policies, practices and resources.
A Listening Project survey with educators revealed that their number one challenge is to help the public understand the issues and choices that school systems and educational professionals face on a daily basis. The ideastream Campaign for Community is allowing educational strengths and issues in Northeast Ohio to be highlighted and amplified; providing direct support to families, educators, school districts, childcare providers and the public; and helping improve educational outcomes, by:
- Continuing coverage of educational issues on all ideastream platforms through the groundbreaking work of the State Impact: Ohio that looks at the impact of policy on educational issues
- Continuing and increasing the focus of educational service to parents, child care professionals, students and schools offering technology-based professional development for teachers and administrators; multiple media instructional content for use in classroom; and training sessions for home care providers and community-based workshops in important areas of need including:
- Early Childhood Learning
- Common Core
- Post-Secondary Transition
