The U.S. Department of Education just approved Ohio’s plan to ensure that low-income students have equitable access to high-quality teachers.

- Third Grade Reading Guarantee
- Early intervention for students at risk of dropping out
- Multiple new pathways to graduation
- An expanded career-technical education system
- College Credit Plus
