New Philanthropy Ohio Report calls for Seamless State and Regional P-20 Structures  

   Preparing Students for Success Report
A new report by Philanthropy Ohio[1], Preparing Students for Success in Life, in reviewing the current state of P-20 (preschool through graduate school) structures in Ohio, concludes that the state must act to connect and strengthen its education continuum.


The report says that since the repeal of Ohio's state-level Partnership for Continued Learning (P-20) in 2009, no official mechanism has existed that connects early childhood, K-12 and postsecondary education policies and practices. As a consequence, collaborative efforts remain "dependent upon personalities and the relationships of the leaders."


Despite what the report views as a state-level set back, Preparing Students for Success in Life commends the gains made by 22 local and regional P-20s. Calling Stark County's Compact "a celebrated regional education model" the report has this to say:


The partnership works to identify solutions to 'support and sustain' all Stark County students in realizing their academic potential and pursuing and succeeding in postsecondary education. The compact also promotes programs that are often hindered by a lack of state-level funding and artificial operating barriers - such as Early College High School and other dual enrollment opportunities.
