Education has the potential to bond communities together, provide the foundation for the state’s long-term economic success, and—most importantly—help students across the state to realize their potential and pursue their dreams. Crucial to knowing how Ohio's education system is faring is strong and accessible data. In that spirit, we are pleased to present our annual publication—Ohio Education by the Numbers. The book, now in its fourth edition and fully updated for 2020, is a look at vital statistics about Ohio’s schools and the students they serve. This is meant purely as an information resource and isn’t a call for policy change.
Whether you’re a lawmaker making policy, a reporter providing information to readers, a philanthropy determining community need, or a business leader seeking to understand student readiness, this publication is designed with you in mind. We intend it to be a readily accessible resource that keeps education stats—with cites to original sources—at your fingertips.
