The right to vote is the foundation of democracy and must be protected for all Americans. Philanthropy Ohio urges our state officials to take actions to assure that all eligible voters can vote without hindrance.
A public-private partnership crafted this brief to inform policy makers about ways to ensure more Ohioans have access to a bright future and that our state is able to grow and support a thriving economy.
As part of Philanthropy Ohio’s commitment to improving education, our Education Advisory Committee, has developed a series of targeted education briefing papers aimed at helping the state’s early childhood, K-12 and higher education leaders, elected officials and other key stakeholders plot a clear direction for the future of education and improved student success. It is our hope that the Open Letter and briefing papers will help guide Ohio leaders as we develop the next state biennial budget and the Ohio plan for the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
