3 things Ohio needs to do to win money for schools
Today's Dayton Daily News featured an op-ed by Fordham's Terry Ryan on what Ohio can do to win in the next round of Race to the Top. In the op-ed, he provides three actionable points for moving forward:
1. Get more buy-in from districts and the teachers' unions.
2. Show bipartisan support for the state's application.
3. Improve the overall quality of Ohio's proposal.
Terry also reminds us not to lose sight of true purpose of Race to the Top:
???Too much of the conversation around Race to the Top has been about getting the money, when the real issue is launching sustainable reforms that can make a difference in the lives of children.???
