Please join your friends for today's NEO Excellence Roundtable. We will focus discussion on issues and opportunities related to education in Northeast Ohio. This topic is especially timely as Cleveland and other school districts plan tax levies this Fall, and a group of NEO champions is planning a series of forums in July exploring innovative approaches to education. We will use the Roundtable as a forum to explore all related matters.

At City Club 05.27.05: School Funding Redux

Submitted by peter holmes on Fri, 05/27/2005 - 14:45.

Ohio could become the first state to enact a constitutional requirement for education funding levels, Bryan Flannery, told a Cleveland City Club Forum Friday.

Flannery, a former municipal and state officeholder, is the self-described chief advocate of a proposed amendment to the Ohio Constitution. He leads a state-wide effort to get the 320,000 signatures needed to put the proposed amendment on November's ballot.

04.13.05 City Club: how intelligence, education and wealth contribute to disparate health outcomes

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Fri, 04/08/2005 - 14:16.
04/13/2005 - 07:30

How do personal characteristics such as
intelligence, education and wealth contribute to disparate health outcomes?

Linda S. Gottfredson, Ph.D., professor
of education at the University of Delaware, and co-director of the
Delaware-Johns Hopkins Project for the Study of Intelligence and Society, will
discuss this and related issues at the next program in the lecture series,
"Prescriptions for Change: Reducing Health Disparities in Our Community,"
presented by the Roundtable Community Council, a program of the Greater
Cleveland Partnership, and the Center for Health Disparities, a collaboration
between MetroHealth Medical Center and Case Western Reserve University.

The program will be held from 7:30-9:30 a.m., Wed., April 13, at The
City Club of Cleveland, 850 Euclid Avenue. It is sponsored by the St. Luke's and
Mt. Sinai Health Care Foundations. Tickets are $15 for City Club members and
nonmembers.

Dr.
Gottfredson has written extensively on the impact of general intelligence on
personal functioning in different life domains, including in school, on the job
and in health self-care. Among her recent publications is an article in Current Directions in Psychological
Science,

co-written in 2004 with Ian J. Deary of the University of
Edinburgh (Scotland), examining the theory that intelligence (as measured by an
IQ-type test) enhances individuals' care of their own health, because it
represents learning, reasoning and problem-solving skills useful in preventing
chronic disease and accidental injury and in adhering to complex treatment
regimens.

Begin caring about the future of our children, as they are the future of this region

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Sun, 03/27/2005 - 17:47.

With Barbara Byrd Bennett's recent "State of the Schools" presentation at the Cleveland City Club it became clear NEO is ramping up for a community-wide activation of all leaders to support Cleveland public schools, now showing significant success rising from the ashes, while facing daunting financial prospects resulting from diminishing state funding and city property tax revenues. Between now and the voting of the public on a levy to increase city taxes for schools, likely in November, 2005, we will be inundated with efforts to raise citizen awareness of the importance of education to the future wherewithal of the regional economy - and it is absolutely essential area schools are successful. As the levy will likely coincide with the Cleveland mayoral election, expect passionate debate on this issue.

At City Club 03.22.05 NOTES: Barbera Byrd Bennett on State of Cleveland Public Schools

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Wed, 03/23/2005 - 01:41.

Clearly there is great interest in education in Cleveland, as the Cleveland City Club 03.22.05 State of the Schools presentation by Cleveland Municipal School District CEO Barbara Byrd Bennett was an overflow event with attendance as diverse and inspired as any in memory. In his introduction of Barbara Byrd Bennett, City Club President Kevin J. Donahue praised her renowned career in education and uncanny ability to work collaboratively with all school stakeholders, all in the interest of improving area education. When Barbara Byrd Bennett was named the Cleveland Municipal School District’s first CEO, six years ago, she challenged the community to rally around the schools and our children. Since then, student performance, attendance, graduation, Internet access, immunizations, and bond funding have all increased significantly. Now, the question is, can these successes be sustained as state funding and property taxes have been dramatically reduced.
