Education the most important issue in attractiving new businesses: should tell that to the tax-cut folks!
- freeze tuition for 2 yrs.
- + financial aid
- Choose Ohio first program (sounds ike Promise for STEM in Ohio)
- emphasis on research scholars (not a bad idea!)
Wouldn't' it be great if the need for this conference went away? When we are in the place where we recognize the important of technology as a given. I need to think about this a while to determine whether I agree.
We're not just competing with other states: we're competing with the world.
Is it our job to keep/attract talent here? I think that goes with the career office. But, yes, I think that's part of our job.
Role of privates:
- help with the meeting of the goals
- Collaborate with publics (what a concept)
Systems thinking for ALL in the state.
Single purchaser for textbooks? Interesting concept.
Lots about STEM, but where's the focus on language? Heaven knows we need that too!!
GREAT QUESTION: there's a lot of sharing with HEd. What about K12?
How do we prepare K12 kids for college success? Especially in places like Cleveland and other sorely underfunded areas? Perhaps a bridge program? Education for K12 on what's necessary.
And, just as importantly, how do we trumpet what we've done??
