2010 State Board of Education election ends, preparations for 2011 begin
Cincinnati, Ohio – Thursday, November 4, 2010: Thank you for supporting my “Achieve Results” education reform campaign — we received almost 23% of the total vote (52,000 votes) in a 5-candidate field.
I congratulate Debe Terhar (34.0%) on her win for the position. I look forward to working with her on issues benefitting all stakeholders, especially Ohio school children.
With this communication, I announce my 2011 candidacy for Cincinnati Board of Education. Currently, three members are looking for re-election on the seven-member Board.
As a CPS parent and concerned citizen, I will continue to provide strategic vision, financial restraint and, a collaborative spirit moving Ohio forward into the 21st century. “Educational rigor and success determine the opportunities we offer our nation’s children and ourselves. With an educational sector operating both effectively and inclusively, we guarantee our relevance in the competitive economic marketplace.”
As Founder and CEO of the nonprofit organization, Partnership for Innovation in Education (P.I.E.), I will join other education leaders — including Debe — at State, regional and Cincinnati Public School (CPS) meetings as we discuss innovative ways to:
- Correct historically uneven education funding for the Cincinnati Public School District,
- Lessen the impact of projected Ohio Department of Education 2011 Budget reductions of 10-30%, and
- Design action plans offering rigorous, career-ready opportunities moving Ohio’s kids into the 21st century.
Partnership for Innovation in Education is a registered non-profit organization. Mary Schlueter, coined an “edupreneur” by the national media, exemplifies the ultimate marriage of business and educational experience as she campaigns for the Cincinnati Board of Education.
