Convince Private Sector to Support Public Education Overhaul

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Fri, 01/06/2006 - 01:29.

 From Philanthropy News Digest is an article on NY Mayor Bloomberg convincing the private sector - corporations, foundations and philanthropists - to support public education overhaul in NYNY, raising from this over $300 million "without strings attached", which is "crucial to their ability to experiment and support research and development efforts within the system". A thought to share as we select and brief our new Cleveland Public Schools CEO. Feel free to share your thoughts...

Education, Parenting, and Open Source Technology solutions

Submitted by Sudhir Kade on Thu, 12/29/2005 - 14:56.

Is it better to design systems of education that disregard parental involvement or is it better to design systems of education that better involve and integrate parents?  I know one motivation to sugggest the former might be frustration with the degree to which many parents have failed in supporting the education of their children.  Eliminating any expectations on the part of educational institutions regarding parenting might hold these institutions to a higher level of accountability for childhood development.  Is this really the way?

Few people in northeast Ohio realize that they may have fascinating, special creatures of the night, Southern Flying Squirrels, in their neighborhood backyards! These tiny little squirrels have the ability to glide long distances from tree to tree in search of food. How they do this, where they can be found, and what they look like are all part of this exciting and informative pictorial presentation.

NeoExcellence Roundtable 12.14.05: Carol Cartwright, KSU President

Submitted by Sudhir Kade on Wed, 12/14/2005 - 14:11.

 

Carol Cartwright, President of Kent State University. gave an engaging presentation on the importance of higher education before a diverse group of civic entrepreneurs and concerned citizens at the City Club Tuesday. Carol announced that she will be retiring soon, closing a chapter in a remarkable and distinguished career in higher education that has spanned over forty years. Carol began with a reminder that there are 170,000 college students in Northeast Ohio, representing 25 colleges and universities. Over 36,000 of these students are Kent State students collectively this highly educated population represents a $2.2 billion dollar economic force and it is clear that we need retain and attract college students and graduates. Though Ohio is slightly above average in High School Graduation rates the state needs 440,000 more college educated citizens to reach the national average- put another way, only 2 of 4 NEO residents have college degrees, while 4 of 10 people do nationally. Cartwright attributed this mainly to legacy of blue-collar jobs but it is clear, she indicated, that times and economics are drastically changing such that this can no longer be the prevailing paradigm. The shortage of college-educated citizens in Ohio is a serious issue that must be dealt with, either through attraction or retention, or both. Many agree there had been a dramatic change in need for college education, but the fear is paying for it - state support has been very low, and there has been a strong inverse correlation between state support and state tuition. Ohio ranks 43rd in the nation in taxpayer support for higher education with one of the highest average college tuition rates nationally.

Launching a Series on Education: Article One

Submitted by Sudhir Kade on Thu, 12/08/2005 - 11:06.

Several organizations in Northeast Ohio have wrangled with the concept of educational reform for decades, yet we have only seen incremental improvements over the years. More recently, change efforts have been ramped up, with survey and dialog based initiatives such as Voices and Choices and By the People currently in full swing. RealNEO has advocated educational reform since inception and has hosted City Club roundtable forums over the past year to address this very issue. All of these efforts have centered upon core challenges to address and these are as follows:
