Ohio Grantmakers Forum Releases Education Report

Ohio Grantmakers Forum (OGF) has released a report, “Education for Ohio’s Future,” which provides a comprehensive look at education in the state from preschool through college.

The report, prepared by a taskforce of grantmakers from throughout the state, outlines a number of high impact changes necessary to prepare Ohio students for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.

The report, available at www.ohiograntmakers.org, is the first of its kind crafted by the state’s grantmaking community which typically provides about $300 million to education initiative annually.

“The essential first step to improving education is a shared understanding of the challenge and opportunities that Ohio faces,” said George Espy, OGF president. “The next step will be going forward together, encouraging state and grantmaker leadership and engaging communities.”

He said a series of regional meetings will be held to disseminate and discuss the report during the first quarter of 2007.
